We have an electron transport chain with the final e- acceptor as SO4 2-. We say this is an anaerobic process, or specifically a case of anaerobic respiration. Elsewhere, as with fermentation and glycolysis, we have anaerobic processes that do not require oxygen. Would it be more appropriate to call these processes with the final e- acceptor as anything other than oxygen to be pseudo-anaerobic? I say this as it seems misleading to call a process anaerobic that inherently is composed of aerobic processes.
