That's not what I'm referring to. You may think uniform names are good, but 
I'm hearing/reading that you think it's perfectly acceptable to force 
average document authors to write internal DTD subsets to be able to write 
"Pepsi ™".

It may be aesthetically pleasing on the technical front, but it's a horrid 
solution on the usability front.
