on the phys.atmol subject, I'd like to see Marie-Lise opinion before you
write any changes, as she introduced many of the initial UCDs for that.
In principle, Jonathan's new names look OK in view of our own work on
Line DM, but I insist that she should say a word on it. Unfortunately,
she does not seem to be on-line, so: Andrea, can this part wait until we
know from her?
