I just caught a news article that summed up nicely what 0day means...
"A zero-day flaw is a software vulnerability that has become public
knowledge but for which no patch is available. It is particularly
dangerous since users are exposed from day zero until the day a vendor
prepares a patch and notifies users it is ready."
this is still incorrect.
as discussed previously: 0day is a perspective.
if it comes from out of no where and pwns your ass, it is 0day.
where you are on the vulnerability disclosure time-line determines
your perspective. one man's 0day is another man's old news.
