This sounds like a reasonable semantics to me.

I'm surprised to hear that. Why is that? (I think I can guess, but I'd
really like to hear the reasoning.)

Those names seem reasonable, but if you go for those you'll have to
keep explaining that "yes, this is the same thing the topic mappers
call 'subject indicator'".
