That's a possibility, but I was pointed to @dur when I was trying to 
figure out how to tag these durations on TEI-L a while back, and I would 
have thought that @dur is a more pure way to do this, no? (Slightly more 
semantically unambiguous, anyway. If you disagree, I suppose we could 
drop the requirement for from EpiDoc @dur altogether, but then I wonder 
why @dur exists at all?)
