And not in the context-set? Or in both?

zrx.set can be either a context set (cql.uri) or an attribute set
(zrx.oid). The purpose is to not require the server to parse out the
zrx.set any/zrx.oid "1.2.840.10003.3.1 1.2.840.10003.3.2"
If the server treated them as words, then it might normalise away the '.'s
Same reason that we have cql.number vs cql.string.
