"Registered Jack" Documentation Issues

I want to Document the Vex Controller's connectors in a consistent way. Unfortunately there seems to be some confusion about wiring....

There seems to be different ways that the Regestered Jack (RJ) numbering is documented.

Wikipedia (as of 26-AUG-2007) has them documented one way with the entry RJ11, RJ14, RJ25, and the Opposite way with
4P4C modular connector (incorrectly known as RJ9) and the Ethernet Twisted Pair Wiring standard TIA/EIA-568-B.

Vex Labs has the RJ on the Vex Controller documented like the "RJ11, RJ14, RJ25" article above.

I like Wil Dixon's Telecom Tidbits the best, because it has Clear "pictures" of JACKS and PLUGS, such as, 6 and 8 conductor modular jacks and plugs. These are from the Universal Service Order Codes (USOC) developed by AT&T in the 1970's for Telephone Companies, and I would assume pre-date anything on the Vex Controller, so my Vex Documentation will follow the USOC standards, NOT VexLabs standards.
