Absolutely! It enriches the new world and creates a further gap between fantasy and reallity.

Yes. It's not always necessary but I like to see it happen.

Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. It depends a lot on the context.

No. In most cases it is just a distraction where I have to figure out what they mean.

Never! It's completely pointless if there was an existing term available. Don't reinvent the wheel.
