The whole discussion raises a larger question for lexicographers. Do we parse words according to their form or according to their presumed meaning.

How should I understand a Future Perfect? (what is the difference in translating a Future Passive from a Future Perfect)
How hypothetically would I understand a Future Present (which to me seems equivalent to Future Perfect in its translation)?
