In the context of dynamics CRM, MS states:
"Free Test instance and Paid Test instance types have been renamed to Sandbox instances."
this comes under "know your tools".

That would be the rest of the world excluding wikipedia and its editors, who also define it as "a testing environment" ?
Regardless, a more universal definition of sandboxes is that they are a secure place to play because keep stuff _in_ and stop it getting _out_ (and affecting "real" stuff). This is emphatically and completely different from being a secure place that stops stuff getting _in_. If in doubt as to the importance of understanding the difference, ask a lobster.
