Muay thai or Thai-kickboxing ?

There were times when problems of recognising Thai national sport were present also in AGFIS - whether it is Thai kickboxing or Muay thai?
And no one could find an answer. IFMA and WAKO then made silent agreement - that waikru and bare feet low-kick with knees and elbows is Muay thai, and WAKO found it without Wai-kru as thai - (kick)boxing or later modified K1 style.
In IFMA in England we see a poster talking about Thai-kickboxing beetwen England and Thailand.
I think this is OK, because it opens the doors to unique and wide understanding of recognised and very popular thai style fighting.
