So. On a note completely unrelated to the friendly little debate that\\\'s been raging merrily here, I wonder (and posit for consideration) whether or not the \\\"miss-use\\\" of the term \\\'star crossed\\\' to mean fated or destined to cross paths/be together is actually worthy of some contemporary validity. The term is, after all, suitable for interpretation either way at face value (as evidenced by the the very miss-use itself). Moreover, as etymology shows, terms are subject to natural evolution and progression over time. In other words, should the fact that people apply the erroneous meaning to the term, and the fact that that meaning is sound as a purely literal-figurative interpretation, give the meaning some modern credence?

I\\\'m putting the question out there to see if people think it might be worth noting the erroneous usage not as such on the trope page, or not only as such, but possibly as an increasingly emergent counter-point usage as well.
