The paper quite explicitly proposes "vernacular" as replacement term instead of "end user".
"dilettante programmers" sounds to me as pretty negative. It also fails one of the points the paper makes against dichotomy of "professional" vs. "non-professional": Many of the end user programmers are in fact quite professional, just in other professions.
