Mark, to me "turn", as a noun, sounds like a "scheduling slot" rather than the thing that gets scheduled into the slot.  For example: "in the next turn, we will run the handler for promise p".  The thing that gets enqueue is "the task of running the handler for promise p" rather than the "turn in which p get handled".

Now its just a word that we are assigning our own meaning to, so we can use "turn" if we want.  But is that equivalence of "turn" and "task" really what you're used to, and something whose meaning is intuitive enough?
