I think 'functional' by CF's definition is too limiting. There are just too many caveats and minutiae in my opinion. I think the real issue is very simple - whether or not an exercise is beneficial for the athlete in question, and this is going to vary among athletes due to their individual strengths, weaknesses and athletic demands.
