I have tried to address this in the GUSL draft (under co-author review,
link to be posted ASAP)

Follows is the tentative text.

0. Meaning of "site"

   The word "site" appears to be understood differently by the
   community than it is loosely defined in [ADDRARCH]:

   It appears that "site" is used by the community as a shorter form
   of "end site" as described in [IPV6ASSIGN]. By extension, "site"
   has largely been used as a synonymous of "/48" and assimilated to
   the administrative boundaries of the organization being assigned an
   end-site prefix.
   This document uses "site" having the same meaning as "end site" as
   described in [IPV6ASSIGN].
