Question about Master and Slave boxes...

I was at the Xfinity store the other day upgrading my X1 master box to support my new 4K TV. A knowledgeable young African American woman was helping me out as I made my way down my list of questions. When I got to the one about whether my slave box needed to be swapped out as well, I couldn't utter the words "master" and "slave". 
I'm as thick skinned as they come and have little tolerance for the easily offended. Yet I found these terms to be desparately in need of replacement. 
 
So my question to Xfinity (and the community) is... is it time to officially change the terminology?

Most use primary and secondary as common descriptions

I agree I said the same thing when I went into an xfinity store just the other day to return some equipment. The IT community needs to rethink this.
