There is no connection, just the same name.

For Slots aka First Class Instance variables:

I sometimes think that Slot for the first class instance variables might not be a good name, but then,
the only alternative would be “instance variable”, but that is not that nice either, as these Slots include
virtual variables (that are computed) or variables that are combine stored in a hidden base slot (e.g.
used for BooleanSlot or PropertySlot). 

So for now I will keep the Slot term…
