Shift nomenclature of 'remote work'

When we use the term 'remote' work we push against diversity of locations and inclusion of those not physically located in the defined and central location. Remote means far or not connected and we are certainly not that in the world of technology we live in. Shifting to "distributed work" (see Matt Mullenweg's work at Word Pres), just defining a colleague's geographic location (I'm working from NJ or I am working from TX) and or simplifying to "I'm working at the organization's Center City Philadelphia location" or "I'm flexibly working from downtown San Francisco today."

Companies commit to onsite childcare as parents become wary of sending their children to larger daycare centers. Reducing exposure to additional social circles, reliability and convenience of onsite care will increase retention and engagement of parents.

Remote working as the new normal will lead to significant shifts in compensation philosophy and guidelines. Will cost of living differences still make sense?
Recruiting
Compensation
Once work from home/remote work becomes the norm, will companies force lower salaries on employees who choose to move to a lower cost of living market? Will top talent tolerate a lower salary, or will they demand their same big city salary even when they move to cheaper areas? Compensation teams may need to create more "national" salaries (vs regional/local) and begin to benchmark more to the true value of contributions by an employee vs a regional benchmarking survey.
