I prefer "Lede" because it's the correct word. It also has the advantage of not have a whole bunch of extra meanings depending on how you look at it or pronounce it. It's clear.

I think it's a case of "don't know it - therefore use wrong word - therefore make 'lede' even less well known". But that's not really an excuse: it just reinforces the attitude that one can get away with a minimal vocabulary, as opposed to the assumption that one will ALWAYS be adding to the words one knows.
