Point taken - the reason it was proposed as a pattern is that it would
be used in audio, video and images - and could be used in geo. It also
doesn't use the 'class' attribute to make itself known.

Is it okay if we call it grouping-examples for now and go from there?

Also, how many uFs does something have to be in to be considered a
pattern? I couldn't find anything on the wiki outlining the proposal
process for patterns.
