Has anyone tried or considered a mid-arm?

What is a mid-arm? This is the 2nd time this week that I hear this phrase, and I'm not quite sure what it is. I think of all of that group of machines that just does quilting as a long-arm. I'm looking at the Handiquilter Sweet 16, which I'm guessing might be what you consider a mid-arm? That's got a 16" throat area, and you move the work under the machine, just like I do on my sewing machine.

I'm thinking maybe a 'real' long-arm is something like the Handiquilter 18 which has a bigger throat area, and where you move the machine over the work.
