Yers. Indeed, my argument was that if anybody's 
name *at all* should appear in such subtag, it 
should be Lunacharsky's. However, my broader 
argument was that attributing those changes 
(long talked about, ripe for introduction, etc.) 
to any single person would be somewhat 
misleading. Why not '1918new', at that? 
'1918decree', even?
