1. cropping [seriously]

2. I would stay away from characterizing a product via the absence of a property (phaseless). 

3. On many occasions people ascribe a property to a description of a collection of artifacts that exists only in each and every artifact. This is especially true in CS/PL/OO. In this spirit, "cross-phase persistent module declaration" would work. 

4. I still like phase-neutral because it is shorter and inspires the right kind of thought.
