Dear Matthew and Ali,    (01)

I agree with Ali's formal presentation, and I admit that the notation
and terminology requires quite a bit of reworking before it can be
translated to ordinary English.  In fact, it cannot be faithfully
translated without a grounding in a formalism that is equally precise.    (02)

Right now, I have some meetings to attend to, but I'll try to write
an explication in terms of the lattice of theories.  It took me quite
a few years of email notes, but people are beginning to feel more
comfortable with the idea.  This afternoon, I'll send a note that
translates Ali's terminology into the terms used in talking about
the infinite lattice and the finite subset called the hierarchy.    (03)

I think that showing the mapping between the two can clarify both.    (04)
