    The terms are interesting iCloud does offer a service associated with music, working from Apple's notes:

     

    "With iCloud, you can have iTunes automatically download new music purchases to all your devices the moment you tap Buy. You can also access past music, movie, and TV show purchases from any of your devices — wirelessly and without syncing.1 And whenever you play a movie, TV episode, podcast, iTunes U lesson, or audiobook on one device, all your other devices will automatically remember where you left off."

     

    This is clearly discrete from the iTunes Match service, again from Apple's notes:

     

    "With iTunes in the Cloud, the music you buy from the iTunes Store automatically appears on all your devices.1 And for music you haven’t purchased from iTunes, iTunes Match is the perfect solution. iTunes Match is built right into iTunes on your computer and the Music app on your iOS devices.2 It lets you store your entire collection in iCloud, even music you’ve imported from CDs or purchased somewhere other than iTunes. When it’s in iCloud, it’s available on all your devices. So you can enjoy all your music anywhere, anytime — on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, PC, or Apple TV."

     

    The overloading of the term iCloud does seem deliberate by Apple.  iCloud appears both to be a general term used by Apple to refer to services using remote storage, as well as a discrete service.  Using the former reference in conjunction with iTunes Match makes sense, for the discrete service definition there is potential for confusion.
