Content block titles should use consistent terminology.
Benefits of conformance
- Reduced cognitive load.
- Reuse of components.
Risks of non-conformance
- Confusion caused by inconsistency.

Correct implementation: The same details are collected on different screens using the same title.
Incorrect implementation: The same details are collected on different screens using inconsistent labels.
