The extended version of Aliens is not a "director's cut." It is considered a "special edition" as it was assembled after the film was finished and there was no conflict between Cameron and the Fox regarding the theatrical edit. The term "director's cut" tends to imply that the theatrical version was not, and is now being thrown about with a bit too much abandon. Note that Fox themselves call the new versions of Alien and Alien Resurrection "director's cuts" even though that is not accurate in those cases either.

Reckless abandon! As always, thank you for your input, as I consider you the authority on these things. I have modified my post to reflect.
