There is a useful convention in legal writing on creating specially defined nouns for the purpose of a single document or a single set of related documents.
"The data set numbered 123 and entitled "Training Dataset for Introductury Calculus, catalog number M101-M102" (hereafter the "Training Dataset") ..." exemplifies a device that lets you exactly define a word or phrase outside its accepted meaning and still use the same word or phrase in its accepted sense by avoiding the initial capital letters.
