I generally favor this proposal also.

One note:  it seems that Frank Bennett has requested a subtag for revised Hepburn only?  Is that correct? (I don't see any problem with this; but the name hepburn will thus not be available if someone later wishes to distinguish one of the other 'flavors,' for whatever reason.)--C. E.
