If there is agreement that we want to introduce an M-label
category and that it should be disjoint from U-labels rather
than a superset of them, I know how to draw it and can go to
work to fit it into the picture.  I believe the problem is real
estate on the page rather than a conceptual requirement.   IMO,
it would be odd, given the existing representation of all
categories of labels in the pictures, to have one category that
is not drawn in.  But I'll follow whatever guidance you want to
