Definition 15.11.1. A henselian pair is a pair $(A, I)$ satisfying

  1. $I$ is contained in the Jacobson radical of $A$, and

  2. for any monic polynomial $f \in A[T]$ and factorization $\overline{f} = g_0h_0$ with $g_0, h_0 \in A/I[T]$ monic generating the unit ideal in $A/I[T]$, there exists a factorization $f = gh$ in $A[T]$ with $g, h$ monic and $g_0 = \overline{g}$ and $h_0 = \overline{h}$.

I would replace 'radical ideal' by 'Jacobson radical' for clarity.

Well, I changed it in this section, because it is clearer as you say. But there are other locations where we use the language "the radical of " which I did not change. For example in Nakayama's lemma 10.20.1.

You can find the change here.

Condition (1) implies uniqueness of the decomposition in (2). It would be nice to mention it; in fact I would not be suprised if this were used somewhere later.

Going to leave as is for now. Some uniqueness is mentined in Lemma 15.11.6.
