Wish Trick

A Bridge Bulletin reader recently wrote me to assert that the definition of "wish trick" was one in which the 5-4-3-2 were played. I have never heard of any definition other than A-4-3-2 for wish trick, so I told him he was mistaken. I even cited the Official Encyclopedia Bridge which confirmed my view. ("It's authoritative if it agrees with me, otherwise it's rubbish!") He countered, however, with a citation from the online dictionary from The Bridge World which says: "Wish Trick: a trick that includes the five, four, three and deuce of the same suit."

Anyone else ever heard of this? Is it just s typo on the Bridge World site? Heresies must be dealt with swiftly, so if you know anything about this alternative definition, please comment below.
