Hi Frans,

possibly the phrasing can be adjusted: requiring "multiple coverage types"
immediately raises a "why several? how many?" whereas a better question is:
"which ones?"
So a better phrasing might be: "Ranking of coverage types by
relevance/importance". Along a classification as I had injected earlier use
cases could be built and ranked.
