Hi, I think I understand Kent Karlsson to be saying that Hangul,  Hangŭl, and Hangeul should all be kept as description fields.  If so, then I am in agreement (but I'm not an expert so I'd be willing to listen to other arguments-- I did not get John Cowan's reasoning for retaining just the first and third of these three fields.)  I think it's better to list the different ways the names are spelled as it makes the description more easily recognized.  (It would help me to see a particular spelling I was used to.)
