Ogel,

 

Thank you for your concern but as far as I am concerned I am going to continue saying and using in the classroom "the perfect TENSE".

 

Are you an ESL / EFL teacher or are you a linguist?

 

Let's see the whole point you are trying to make about the ASPECT through the eyes of the "native speaker".

 

Technically the "native speaker" of English knows neither TENSE nor ASPECT and they still do a pretty good job speaking and communicating on a very high level because they are "native speakers" with inherited abilities given by their birth and their brought up in a setting where English is the dominant language.

 

I know someone personally who is taking a PhD course in rethoric who is also a native speaker of English who still respects the norm which is the terminology of the environment he is inserted in.

 

Honestly to me you just sounded like a pure theorist with nothing much to add to the needs of my Second Language students.
