A lot of people nowadays say “final functor” instead of “cofinal functor” because the “co” in “cofinal” is confusing in a categorical context (it’s not originally the dual of anything). This has the advantage that we can also speak dually of an “initial functor”. I say “nowadays” but this change goes back at least to the first edition of CWM.
I suppose one could alternately have retroactively interpreted the “co” in “cofinal” as a dualization and decided to call the dual notion “final,” but no one does that. Also the word “final” is rather more intuitive (to me, anyway) for the notion described by “cofinal” than it would be for its dual.
All of which is to say, how would people feel about renaming cofinal functor to final functor? (I’ve already added redirects.)
I think it’s okay. Stupid question: what’s the simplest way to change the title of an article?

Hit Edit. Then check “Change page name” right above the “Submit” button. Enter the new name. Hit submit.
Then call for help, because due to the cache bug somebody with access to the server needs to cleafr the cache in order for the renaming to propagate properly.-
Okay, thanks very much. Second stupid question: how do I get diacritical marks to appear in titles (as in Poincaré)?
I renamed cofinal functor to final functor, and likewise for final (infinity,1)-functor.
