Yes. I tend to be pretty casual.

In point of fact constructors for interesting anonymous functions almost inevitably are closures. For instance the example I mentioned of something which I would have written this way had I been writing it (Pod::Parser) is one where the optional hooks would be anonymous subs that were in lexical scope. Therefore the final thing constructed is a closure by anyone's use of the language. :-)
