I've re-read the ticket & comments, and all the emails about it. 
  I would like to express more than the above list of 
for-one-or-other gives me the ability to.  So I've put up a 
little doodle.com poll that you can all fill in:


This allows you to say:
- In favour
- Could live with this option
- Against
for each proposed option.

In this case I've put in tei:object, tei:objectType and 'neither' 
(for those who think both are wrong).

My vote is:
tei:object: Against (because I think that is a really bad name)
tei:objectType: In Favour
neither: Could live with this option.

Doodle.com also happens to use a very similar traffic-light 
system of green/yellow/red as we do in classifying our tickets. 
Might I propose that anytime we want to have a quick show of 
hands we use some system like this rather than having to collate 
various emails? (We should of course copy the final result back 
to the mailing list so it is preserved in the archive.)

My vote and my two pence,
