I suggest that the following text be added to the version sent to IANA:

  This includes both the traditional form with three accents and two
  breathings used on initial vowels and rhos, and reformed versions with
  fewer accents and with or without breathings on vowels or rhos.
  It excludes the monotonic form with one accent and no breathings.

This great college [Trinity], of this ancient university [Cambridge],
has seen some strange sights. It has seen Wordsworth drunk and Porson
sober. And here am I, a better poet than Porson, and a better scholar
than Wordsworth, somewhere betwixt and between.  --A.E. Housman
