I say do it. Wikipedia considers them the same thing and as far as I know, they are.

However, there might be a bit of confusion for any Java developers and that might be a drawback. Apparently both exists as separate entities, so we'll need to be prepared to explain that tags such as these are not language specific.

AFAIK there's no reason to use it, ever (its synchronization is rarely useful and if so, then there's Collections.synchronizedMap). I guess, there are many people not knowing that it exists (and that's a good thing). \$\endgroup\$ – maaartinus Jul 4 '15 at 18:38
