Cuffins? Mupcakes?

In today's NYT, Melissa Clark declared that muffins are "sweet little cakes" no different from cupcakes. I disagree. My ideal muffin is more on the dour side, never iced, and often has additions like nuts, fruit, and so on. They can also be split, toasted and buttered. What do you think? I have a feeling we might see a regional and/or generational split here.
