Forgive me for offering this example, LL, but would you shrug it off if a genre were dubbed 'faggot rock?'

It's happened with Queercore, as Hunter pointed out. Fine with that, as it's an affirmative definition. Context is all. If it's used in a derogatory way it's not good (as in the example of Bowie et al being written off that way), but those who talk about Krautrock aren't doing it that way at all. The opposite in fact. Still, I've called Krautrock 'German Psychedelic Music' before, when I've been talking to someone who wouldn't know what Krautrock is. But at 8 syllables to Krautrock's 2, it's not very snappy.
