Actually, no, “Doctor” Femano, Egyptology (primarily a linguistic discipline) and Egyptian Archaeology have no need to redefine their “traditional terms” to accomodate your personal fantasies.

Traditional terms? For most of us, ‘ramp’ and ‘tomb’ are everyday English words—and, in the usual way of fringe ideologues, it’s you who’s doing what you accuse others of doing: redefining everyday words to suit yourself.

Oxford again:

http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/ramp

As before, it you don’t like Oxford, cite some other recognised lexicographical source.

A ramp (qua inclined plane) is one of the six (6) classical simple machines. Wikipedia (itself citing sources) will do very well for present purposes:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inclined_plane

“An inclined plane, also known as a ramp, is a flat supporting surface tilted at an angle, with one end higher than the other, used as an aid for raising or lowering a load. . . .”
