We do, I think.  We have to make this simpler.  Henry's descriptions 
are starting to read like ISO 10744 with new terms.  That is
regrettable.

We can't prevent use of the GI, and in fact, it 
is in use. We should encourage use of the attribute.  We can 
have both.  The PIs are useful for registering forms.
