Yes, for a project that is both keying and regularizing it would make
good sense to use reg= on <persName> (w/o key=) and key= on
<regName>. But we need to permit key= on <persName> for those
projects who are keying, and either not regularizing or are
performing regularization via whatever database the key= points to.
