Absolutely not! Someone is going to define the list of attributes that
constitute a DC Title. My guess is that we will be the ones that do that
and I personally am reluctant to step on the DC folk's toes. Which is why
you, Ray, volunteered to nail down the attributes for DC indexes.

We get to pick. I'd suggest that it be the new attribute architecture.
Again, the conversations that led up to the new architecture were extremely
valuable in understanding the concept of an index.
