Not many people conform to POSIX's pretentious claim on "_t". Personally I don't
typedef much of anything but I wouldn't fault anyone for using that convention (I
wouldn't do it for uint_t though).
A program should be written to model the concepts of the task it
performs rather than the physical world or a process because this
maximizes the potential for it to be applied to tasks that are
conceptually similar and, more important, to tasks that have not
yet been conceived.
