I added the notion of a regular curve to curve. In differential geometry, for most purposes only regular curves are useful: the parametrized smooth curves with never vanishing velocity. Smooth curves as smooth maps from the interval are not of much use without the regularity condition: their image may be far from smooth, with e.g. cusps and clustered sequences of self/intersections.
