Yeah, that one's always bugged me. As aikido's a fairly recent invention/synthesis/name, it doesn't make much sense as to me. I guess you could argue that it just means carrying on a modern tradition if there can be such a thing.
What it generally translates as is, "Kinda Aikikai but lets face it they wouldn't let us affiliate in a million years because we're dodgy as hell, and made half of this stuff up." Real Champagne doesn't have "Propper, Genuine, nonfake Champas" on the label.

Do a real quiz:
I'm a super warrior. :cool:
As John said in the movie 'Hard Eight': "I know three types of Karate: Jujitsu, Aikido and regular Karate."

M. Ueshiba Ryu. His Aiki, was the one that gave birth to all styles!
so this is the one that accepts all connotaions of all the rest described. IMHO. for what its worth :)
