I agree that this solution would work, but I won't let that little
detail persuade me that it's a good one :-)  Seriously, this seems to
be a hack to solve one very specific instance of the fuzzy-schema
problem, and I would rather meet that head on if we can.  (That way,
we won't have to come back and do it again when we want to make loose
IEEE LOM records, as you alluded to in a later message.)
