Okay, so what does SLYT really mean?

The Mefi Wiki says:
SLYT: Single Link You Tube. A post that points to one video clip, usually (but not necessarily) hosted at YouTube.com
But I think general usage of the term means more than that. The definition above seems to boil down to: "This FPP has one video link". Common usage seems to actually be: "This FPP has one video link, and it is the only link in this FPP"
When I posted my first FPP
I applied the "SLYT" text even though said FPP contained two links total (thus following what I understood to be the appropriate way to use it).
Today I see another FPP
using "SLYT" in the same manner that I did.
This is major beanplating - I know. I just gotta get this figured out.
