In our shop we call the outline a "binding line" and the lighter band a "boundary band".  I suspect that one or both of these terms is "local usage" and I'm wondering what others call them.

On the Esri Mapping Center they called them "tint bands".

I would probably say boundary line and boundary inset, but that partly reflects the name of the tool I'm using to do it.

I usually say "outside" and "inside" lines, or "main" and "inset" lines (because we use an Illustrator multiline style to do this usually). We use those both for actual territorial boundaries and for "see more detailed map at right" areas, so "boundary" is a little to specific for this effect for us.

Ditto in India, boundary line, boundary ribbon.

The boundry line is just that, and the colored shade line is a vignette.
