You have convinced me and I went as far as fixing documentation to talk about helplines, so "helplines" is in fact unambiguously the term for the lines while moving, while the other "guides" are "snap lines" everywhere unless I missed any. This is indeed clearer.

And it turns out I found a few inconsistent spellings that I fixed as a side effect.

Visible Grid → Display Grid
Guides → Snap Lines
Display Guides → Display Snap Lines
Snap to Guides → Snap to Snap Lines
Guides when moving → Helplines While Moving
Guides while moving → Helplines While Moving
Numbering/Bullets → Bullets and Numbering...
Case/Characters → Change Case
