>2. Are not class names supposed to have a single meaning across _all_

Even if they are, care still needs to be taken, where the class name is
likely to occur, in other contexts, such as "title", "var", "bin"
"class" etc. I again refer you to discussion on this point in the
'species' discussions.

Of course, there  may be language issues, too. Suppose it came to light
that, say, "vcard" was Elbonian for "headline", and thus widely used by
newspaper sites in Elbonia?
