Hi Lisa,

I think Common Concept would work (FWIW).

My current concern is that the AA SC (as opposed to its companion AAA SC)
does not have the mandate for a machine-readable, taxonomic entry (which is
why/how a technique such as using @title would work for the new AA SC). In
other words, it is a list, but not a list of 'pairs' (term/definition) at
AA - that the definition half could be provided as prose.

As I have previously suggested, the AA requirement is that we provide
additional contextual information to a fixed list of these common concept
controls/inputs (somehow), but without *MANDATING* a taxonomic "look-up"
table that would be required at the AAA level.
