In which context and by whom?

I know a few translators, and only one of them really uses that title. In some translation circles one person who uses it a lot is an unfortunate object of mockery as a result. I don't know any Nyingma or Kagyu Lamas who use it in Tibetan, most seem to use the more colloquial "Ke gyur".
