I agree with Evan's observation that his issue is a use case for N- 
ary and so shouldn't be absorbed into ISSUE-5. I withdraw that  
proposal. But I have a new one :-)

I propose that we resolve this issue by adding it to [1] as a use  
case. I don't think that it is necessary or appropriate to give this  
particular use case the status of a separate issue.
