Although there is no reason to consider this definition obsolete, because it is far from clear that "a bolt by definition takes a nut" . Using a coach "bolt" as an example (and it has been a 'bolt' for a very long time). It was not originally intended to receive a nut, but did have a shank. Its purpose was not to pass through the entire substrate but only one piece of it, while the threaded portion bit into the other in order to draw, and clamp the materials together. The 'carriage' bolt was derived from this and was employed more to speed up manufacturing than achieve a different function. The carriage bolt passes through both pieces of materials and employs a nut to provide the clamping force. Both are still, however, bolts.
Within the United States, SAE International maintains Specification J1508  for thirty-two different hose clamp designs, including screw, spring, and t-bolt styles. It also maintains Specification J1610  for the testing the sealing of hoses. The US Army TACOM maintains Commercial Item Description (CID) A-A-52506  that provides for the standardized acquisition of hose clamps by the Department of Defense ; the CID references the SAE specifications. The CID superseded Federal Specification WW-C-440  for hose clamps in 1994.
