Well, you'd need to talk to artikid about that one - he's got the armor supplement.
I think Rapier is fine (especially with a small note that it encompasses "quick fencing-type weapons"). I think the sabre-type weapons (as you mention) are pretty much either Longswords or Shortswords, only having a single edge rather that both sides... but functionally for the rules, the same as L.Sword/Short... case in point, Scimitar is mentioned on same entry as Long Sword.
heavy sabres are basically scimitars - curved, slashing weapon (usually with a little edging on the back to keep a good thrusting point). Rapier has a bit of edging at the tip, but is really a thrusting (piercing) weapon. I'd like to differentiate the slashing quick blades from the hacking cutlass blades.

Fencing blades, or maybe "quick blades" which I just came up with typing this up.
