I don't want to push our interpretation as the "right" one, but we
used 'complete field' (completeness) for 'entire contents of a field',
To me this just highlights the mess that we all know Bib-1 is, hence
my desire for CQL to define its own semantics rather than mandate
explicit attribute list bindings.
ps: To avoid further screams of pain from various list members, I am not
even going to mention the semantics we attached to 'string' versus 'word'
or 'phrase'! (But we do allow DB designers to change it! :-)
