Guidline 1.1, level 1, item 3 too specific

The uses of non-textual have very varied purposes.  Often there is a
significant part of the purpose that ought be considered background,
rather than content, but I think that there are variations in foreground
use and labelling a symphony with its title (example 4) may not always
be the right treatment.

I'm not sure what you do about deliberately misleading use of such items,
which is very prevalent in advertising copy, because it allows you to
hint at things which would violate advertising standards rules if given
in plain text.
