I don't think anyone's objecting, Jon (at least not on here).   
Michael's list below illustrates my viewpoint rather well.  BM and CW  
used this loan word sparingly, as I'm suggesting we do.  Tregear a  
whole lot less so.  For "table", I've used: mos, bord (loan) and tabel  
(loan) quite happily.
