Great, thanks!
These physicists really stretch the meaning of ’duality’, don’t they? It was one step to take it to mean equivalence, as in S- or T-duality, but here it seems to mean some form of (small coupling) limit.
One just has to accept that, in this field, words are not used with precision. (Yet. More on this in a few days… ;-) Also, one ambiguity may cancel out the other: The term “strongly coupled type IIA theory” is also in use (e.g. here), and if one accepts that, then “duality” again means “equivalence” here.
