Pope Benedict said on Friday as he left Israel that the Holocaust "must never be denied"

I don't think the term "Holocaust Denial" does any favors to revisionist.
People are still confused on what it means. Ie. Do they deny the corpses? Do they deny Hitler's racist regime? It's automatically dismissed as an insane movement and compared to the 'flat-earth society' and other idiotic movements.
I think revisionism needs to utilize more specific terminology that clearly identifies "Gas-Chambers" as the source of dubiety.

The term 'holocaust' is way too ambiguous and multi-meaning to the majority. Keep it specific and focus on the gas-chambers.
Forget about what it means TO YOU. Think about what it means TO THE MASSES.
Even if you watch Phil Donahue's talk show with Bradley and Cole -> the audience still doesn't have the slightest clue what they are arguing, they perceive it as a racist upsetting attack on Holocaust survivors.
"Holocaust Denial" plays into the media's hands 100%.
Even "Holocaust Revisionism" is too ambiguous. Specification of gas-chambers is required to cut through the smog of confusion.
I don't think it's the lack of evidence that is inhibiting holocaust revisionist's message, it's the confusion and complete lack of understanding.
As it stands, I'd say the majority believe:
Holocaust Denial = denial of hitlers racist regime, denial of persecution of jews, denial of concentration and extermination camps, denial of everything to do with hitler and the jews.
... this follows through with implications of Neo-Nazism, racism etc etc.
Gas-chamber dubiety = question the gas-chambers, scientific, specific, understandable. cuts out 95% of the misunderstandings/confusion
