While trying to do some reading for the question Need help understanding staging shown in infographic of Titan launch of Hexagon satellites I ran across the Wikipedia article for Titan III.
This article mentions "Stage 0"
Is the usage of "Stage 0" specific to Titan IIIC or was it in more widespread use at the time?
Does a "Stage 0" complete it's burn and separate before Stage 1 ignites? What makes a booster a proper "Stage 0"?
