According to a cursory google search:
> Normalization or normalisation refers to a process that makes something more normal or regular.

That's what I'm referring to.

Normal, as in regular, as in consistently structured, as in i can look impose a structure on it.

Further googling it sounds like there's a technical use for it that has to do with databases specifically, and how to impose some sort of notion of a "standard" order over the mess that is an RDBMS. In practice I can see why nobody cares.

Which is probably also why I don't care about that, as nobody has ever paid me to care about it. If I can star cluster my DB and get it to perform, nobody cares about BCNF, at least they never have in my 20+ years of development.
