I think the word isn't meant to only say the person sees it as the norm, but that they see the norm as sacrosanct or the rest as invisible.

But I do like amorism/amorist better. My only problem with that is that I see poly people referred to as polyamorists, and if amorist becomes the relationship orientation equivalent of sexist, racist, sexualist and so on, then "polyamorist" will sound like it's someone who is bigoted against polyamory rather than someone who is poly.
