"Subset" is the killer word here. Is means
different things to different people. In
an SML context "simple" also means different
things to different people. Simple for 
programmers, simple for content creators,

I am particularly fond of the way the word
"subset" has been abused in WAP which has
a JavaScript implementation which is an
"extended subset" of ECMA262. Go figure!
