That's fine if you are only talking to people who share your same idea, but UEFI is not BIOS in very important ways, so calling it BIOS will lead to confusion, and it can make trouble-shooting far more difficult if you are trying to tell someone what to do in BIOS which may simply not be possible in UEFI, or vice versa.

I think we need to send some time apart so we know what's real and what's fox.
