while some things are historically appropriate and "period", common sense 
should dictate that care be used in some circumstance ... in this case we have 
a suggested term that some have unfortunate modern connections ...    

as a individual who belives in "power through" vs "power over" i would have as 
much trouble respecting a modern, mundane "warden" as would my historical scots 
cousins would have respecting the "wardens" imposed upon by the english 

all in all, it would be a bad choice in terminology that would best be avoided.

what exactly is wrong with the usual term "champion" or "warlord" ??? ... no 
need to further muddy already murky waters.
