steveb I don't understand why you think usage of "home" is bad. I asked you before and you didn't give an answer.
It seems like you think "Home" is some bizarrely obfuscated term that no one would understand, but to be quite frank I think that is completely untrue. In my experience "Home" is the text that visitors expect on a link back to the, um, home page, and using anything else than "Home" or "something + home" is likely to cause confusion.
If you can cite some usability studies that suggest otherwise I'd be interested to read them though.
Whitey, even if keyphrases in links to home do pass benefit (which has not been proven to anything like my satisfaction), for SEO results you would almost certainly be better off spending the time it would take to do that producing additional content or linkbuilding.
