Why thank you, cynics might say that since you've got a use case for it

Completely reasonable, yes, of course.  I was only responding to Dan's 
idea that we might be changing the semantics slowly (is that 'semantic

with a similar structure.  But yes, all we're suggesting now is that 
graphic should be added to model.glossLike.
