Well, I think that if you don't tell the whole truth then you're not being honest. If you think about it, and you have to rationalize why you're doing it then that means you shouldn't do it. XD So yes, I think a lie by omission is still a lie. Not as bad, but a lie is a lie. No matter what you dress it up as or try to explain it as, it's still a lie underneath it. But sometimes it's hard to be truly honest with some people because it may hurt their feelings. So I understand how not wanting to hurt someone's feelings or tell them the whole truth may get in the way of that. But really, the truth will come out somehow. And then that person you lied to may be upset with you later.
I've been in both cases, where I told the truth and where I didn't say anything because I didn't want to hurt someone else's feelings. And both cases didn't end well. So sometimes it may be like...damned if you do, damned if you don't. XD

What do y'all think? XD

I think "deception" is probably a better word to use. Because it's the same principle but not as specific a term.

Mm. Yeah, I hear ya. :) It can be a tricky thing.
