How I always interpreted this: the command line says rrdtool (and thus so do 
examples etcetera), when talking about RRDtool say RRDtool.

Also: I always used one RRD, two RRDs for round robin databases (I think 
RRDs.pm is an unfortunate choice in this respect), one RRA, two RRAs for 
RRDtool archives within such a database.
