I'm sure my music theory classes are now terribly out of date, but whatever happened to the category of chords described simply as "dominant embellishing?"  —And placing emphasis on the surprise created by their occasional wickedly unexpected resolutions?  ;-)

BYW, I love the idea of having fun with the names of the augmented six chords.  It seems to me that it helps make them more vivid for students and probably also puts them into a useful perspective.
