yes I did assume you might be one of those jazz-snobs.
Also I said that "The point (of music nomenclature) is to be able to write precisely what you have in mind."
That should be applicable to music notations as well.
Especially true with fretted instruments, where you have the E4 note, which you could play on at least 4 different strings (guitar for example).

Otherwise (and I am overly exaggerating it) I might tell you:
"Hey, Goldleap, hear this 5 min. music piece I recorded using these 16 notes (span in more than one octave). Now go and interpret them to play the piece."
I am sure that a skillful musician could learn and play the piece by spending some time listening to the piece (that was how I learned many songs myself), but we are talking about notating a music piece and not... and not interpreting it. I hope the OP was obviously clear about that.
