Hi Phil,

Thanks for the very informative reply.

It makes sense that the vocabulary file needs to be corrected.  I was
able to find a human-readable version at
http://www.icra.org/vocabulary/2008/  It looks like ICRA 2008 would be
rather dysfunctional without the 'sz' term.  Now that I think of it, I
should be able to host my own corrected copy until the "official" URL
is working.

If you get a chance, also check the 'hd' term, which has conflicting
definitions.  ;)

Enjoy,
Robert
