Terminological illogic

Following on from this post another terminological question comes to mind: why on earth do people talk about "ballistic missiles" without being laughed at? Aren't all missiles ballistic? (I can't remember where I read someone pointing this out, though I have a feeling it might have been C. Hitchens.)
