I do not see why we should rename that options as it exactly does what it says :
1) 'Clip' does not imply any kind of resize, believing so is just confusing that word with 'Crop'.
2) Even with proposed changes, that options will likely not do what that user want as clipping to margins imply that if margins are != 0 that option may remove some page elements.
