comment Can you use the word “transient” as a verb?
Thinking some more, and specifically of KISS, "the system the client data passes through". To my mind acceptable to both technical and non-technical readers.

Transit is quite good but I would be puzzled by traverse if I came across it in a manual.

comment Words for personal views on life, society, world
Yes it has but one doesn't encounter it in everyday use. Used by writers who can assume an educated audience. Otherwise perhaps "personal philosophy" or "outlook on life" etc

comment “Exact a price” versus “extract a price”
I tentatively agree. If I heard someone "extract a price" I would take it to mean that someone had been unwilling to give a price. "He was coy with the price but I extracted a price from him". Whereas exact a price would be to compel payment or similar.
