I don't think so. There's no significant functional difference, as each person is still free to negotiate a mono or poly structure.
Though the "polyfexible" offered above could prove useful in some fashion. I could end up supporting that.
When speaking of various forms of non-monogamy...it ain't poly if you're just fucking around.
While polyamory, open relationships, and swinging are all distinctly different approaches to non-monogamy, they are not mutually exlusive. Folks can, and some do, engage in more than one of them at a time--and it's all good.
