I am not convinced that <sic> doesn't work here. The definition of sic
does not refer to scribal error alone, but just says 'reproduced
although apparently incorrect or inaccurate' and this applies in the
examples we have been given. Similarly, elsewhere in the Guidelines, it
is said that sic is used to 'mark passages considered by the transcriber
to be erroneous'.
However, if most of us feel that we need a specialised element, I won't
object. It that case, I agree with Gabriel we need a term that is
descriptive, and I can't think of a better word than superfluous either.
