Wait. Isn't "pleonasm" in and of itself a superfluous word, since you have to explain it every time you use it -- a self-fulfilling word?
 
Um, isn't that what I said?
 
Actually, it's other people's ignorance that requires the extra verbage, not pleonasm itself. So pleonasm is the efficient way of saying 'blah blah blah technobabble' and the like.

A good word.
