Hi Hugh

Thanks for your reply concerning dictionary words. I am still trying to
understand why the policy is still in place and what it is supposed to
achieve given their acceptbility in other domains and the fact that
no-one has shown harm from the ones that have already been approved and
are in use (the two things not being the same).

Warm regards
