Does anyone agree that a "Not an Invocation" page should exist? I see a misuse of the term all too often.

Does this also apply to the creator invoking a trope that would normally be YMMV? Such as Uncanny Valley? For instance, if a character is not necessarily trying to invoke Uncanny Valley, but the creator is, does that count?

I believe that would simply be an example of the creator using a trope as a tool. Most trope appearances in fiction are deliberate; they exist to make storytelling more efficient and effective.

That's actually an Intended Audience Reaction, and I think (note the word "think") that still belongs in YMMV.
