Talking Zuiko Digital 9-18mm... SWD?

I have just been packing up a lens for a hire customer and I noticed something very strange - it's a ZD 9-18mm (Four Thirds version) and the instruction manual declares it's a Zuiko Digital ED 9-18mm f/4.0-5.6 SWD.

There no such lens of course and it looks like a typo...

SWD = Somewhat Wide Design

Compared to the 7-14mm it is a "Slightly Wide Design"
