1. I thought it worthwhile to add the view of monoids as strict monoidal categories. This seems missing here.

A question on language; isn’t it confusing in a natively homotopy-theoretic context to give unadorned terms like “monoid” a default interpretation that is effectively “… object in Set” rather than “… object in $\infty\! Gpd$”?

I suppose one might argue that the implicit infinity-category convention should extend to writing “monoid” for $A_\infty$-space, but I haven’t heard anyone suggest it before.
