Because I was looking for a single word to describe the set of nodes resulting from duplicate elimination. While I can say "factorised nodes" it is quite awkward to say: "duplicate-eliminated" nodes. and "nodes with eliminated duplicates" is a long, 4-word phrase. For that I'd probably say "uniquely-valued nodes" or, since I don't much like the word "unique" (mainly since it's so commonly abused these days to mean "special"), then "distinctly-valued nodes" or (when talking in the context, for example, of Muenchian grouping) "representative nodes".
