FWIW, I kind of agree with Gary that it doesn't make much sense to
define the term if we don't use it at all in SpecGL; in which case it
might be a better fit for ViS, for instance.

(BTW, it may be a bit better to answer to commenters only when the WG
has discussed the comment and agreed on a common position, to avoid
getting them confused as to what our definitive answer is - although
getting discussion on www-qa is also certainly a good way to move
forward)
