They truly want to impose those latinizations on the rest of the parish, tho... and they cringed visible when the pastor described the parish as "Orthodox in Communion with Rome"....
The problem isn't that they hang on to the latinizations... its that they think those are the uniform face of the Byzantine Rite, not just a particular subset of the UGCC.
