Yeah, I keep thinking of doing something like that. The reason I haven't 
yet is that I don't want to go down the route of people seeing that and 
thinking that that means that other things in that section might apply 
even when they don't (the intro to that section explicitly says that 
nothing there applies if the attributes aren't applicable).
