True, but perhaps no need to be so harsh about the terms widely
understood as synonyms (from pre-XML era, remember HTML tutorials?),
especially when the target audience wrt. XML level of configuration
keeps shifting towards real power (as in maximum-level-of-control
pursuing) users vs. wider audience served with more abstract means
thanks to crm/pcs.

In anything, would expect rather pointing out the "CIB version 1.3+
does support 'tag' elements" paradox ;-)

I see, this shakes the message delivery, something I am running into
all the time when proof-reading my own sentences (especially since I am
not a native speaker), and employing various tricks such as the basic
quoted "meta escape" or join-by-dashes one.

Happy Monday
