Re: Klingon WOTD: 'aqroS (n)

>This is the Klingon Word Of The Day for Tuesday, December 3, 2002.
>Klingon word:   'aqroS
>Part of Speech: noun
>Definition:     maximum
>Additional Notes:  BoP Poster.

Literally "top (interior)" the meaning is extended in the BoP Poster:

   'aqroS qughDo: pIvlob Hut vI' vagh
   Maximum Cruising Speed - Warp 9.5

   jabbI'ID pup: Qapchu'meH 'aqroS chuq: cha' vI' chorgh loghqammey
   High Resolution - Maximum Effective Range - 3.5 Light Years

Is this use of {'aqroS} standard usage or just technical jargon (i.e. in 
the same way that pilots refer to a plane's "ceiling", the maximum height 
above sea level at which a particular airplane can maintain horizontal 
flight under standard air conditions)?
