Hmm, it would be important to keep this in sync with the core-SQL
description of CASE, no?  (Section 9.16.1)

I can't say that I think "simple CASE" and "searched CASE" are good
descriptions of the two forms, but just switching them doesn't make it
much better.  And doing so would likely create as much confusion as
it eliminates.  Can we come up with some other phrases?
