I agree that this is the best course of action. Regardless of how any of this
is decided or modified or whatever, we have too many terms here and need to
standardize on some subset of them.
I'll see what I can do for the next draft.
One more thing. In an earlier response I said that the handling of trailing

that I had already done so. My apologies if this confused anyone.
