Non-just nomenclature?

The article says that isoharmonic only applies to just chords.

What about chords like (1):(sqrt(3)):(2*sqrt(3)-1)? The distances between notes are equal in linear measurements, but the ratios are not just. There must be a better name than "equal-hertz", I hope.

If there is no current naming standard, I propose to name them "Equal-Beating," a name which Mike uses a lot. This would be a broader category, including all isoharmonic chords but also including a plethora of irrational chords.

Equal beating is OK. I suppose arithmetic progression chords wouldn't please most people, but it does have the advantage of telling you just exactly what it is.
