[what a subject to discuss...]

Pat,

If XL is really a *global* mapping I assume that
each literal node is mapped into *one-and-ony-one* literal value
or have I misunderstood global?
then I don't see why
.. A literal node is a particular occurrence of a literal
.. literal nodes are unique to each graph.
.. several occurrences of a literal produce several rectangles with the same
label
.. literal nodes are not 'merged' in this way

I think that the most convenient global mapping is
  XL(literal-as-simple-name) = literal-as-simple-name
i.e. the identity mapping
