Emelia Hazelip uses of the term synergistic agriculture which she (or 
someone) has defined at length.
Index of /ecolandtech/souscayrous/EmiliaHazelip-SynergisticAgriculture 
(mostly in French, lots of plans and annotated drawings)
Buckminster Fuller referred often to synergy

all these words and terms can, if used in the context of permaculture as 
an umbrella discipline, be extreme;y useful

synergistic, sustainable, regenerative, biological, ecological, 
biointensive, biorganic, beyondorganic, restoration, preservation 

seems to me that people will want to think of an umbrella discipline as 
an easy starting point, such as permaculture or one or more alternate or 
companion terms :  synergistic and symbiotic terminology
