dressing for salads, for turkeys, for your prom

With Thanksgiving over, I'm left with the same question in my mind.
Dressing or stuffing?

Clearly the turkey is getting stuffed unless you are taking the easy way out and serving it up in a bowl. But why call it dressing? Dressing on a salad makes some sense because it makes the salad look... nicer? Does dressing IN a turkey help in the appearance of the dead bird? Does it have to aide in appearance to be dressing? Can it simple be a glorified condiment to be called dressing?

You decide.
