*Someone* must have thought @old= was a good idea! If they don't own up 
soon, I'm really really going to zap it....

On <desc>, note that the proposal is to permit you to use it also in 
cases where you really don't want to have to define the <handDesc> at 
all, so there won't be anything for @new (or @old) to point to. So you 
can just say

<handShift><desc>writing goes a bit wonky here</desc></handDesc>

I think that's quite useful for simple cases.
