Could oom, oom-killer and outofmemoryerror be merged to oom?
I don't think oom and oom-killer should be synonyms. The first one describes a specific situation and the second one a mechanism to handle said situation. They are of course closely related, but not the same.
outofmemory doesn't exist/isn't used .
