We use those three names almost interchangeably, but people who don't know they're synonyms will get confused.

We should pick one of them and stick with it. This requires documentation update, but most likely also code update (in particular, class and comment renames).

An API is not the same than a channel so I have no problem with this: just say the management API is used over the control channel. Between control and command I prefer control but I leave this to native English speaker because it is well known that the word control has different meaning in French and English, i.e. it is a well known source of confusion.
