A proposal for a paired set of definitions  
Well, not definitions, precisely, but how does this sound to you?

Ethics: Doing this right keeps you from fucking up someone's life.
Etiquette: Doing this right keeps you from fucking up someone's day.

I'd say, "Ethics helps keep you from intentionally fucking up someone's life or day. Etiquette helps keep them from thinking you're an asshat anyway."
