Well, that's another popular use of wave. One could refer to the Spring PR releases as a wave.

"Wave" is only good as a very general grouping term. Put any real meaning behind it and people will get confused. "Wave" is a group of "things". If you want to be more specific, use a better term.
I suppose it comes down to the fact that Hasbro does seem to use Wave internally, at least to some degree. That naturally leaves an inclination to refer to waves in that fandom, and by and large it's easily comprehended. It's just the idea of grouping all waves together even if you only have, say, four (designated) waves of Leader Class releases and eight (designated) waves of Deluxe Class releases, spread across the same eighteen month period.

I get what you mean by and large, though. More-precise, or at least more-specific, terminology would definitely help alleviate things like this.
