> Passive implies less-than-full-time work, not "no work".

Pretty sure passive really means "no work". Granted, it's a theoretical concept that in practice can only be approached, but "less-than-full-time" does not sound like a fair approximation. Some passive income can require less than an hour a month of "work" (basically doing some paperwork for your broker, filling your tax form or stuff like that).
