[tei-council] @dur seems to be unavailable

I should have seen this:

<classSpec xmlns="http://www.tei-c.org/ns/1.0" module="spoken" 
predeclare="true" type="atts" ident="att.duration">

But I was led astray by the Guidelines, which say:

Module	tei — 1 The TEI Infrastructure

In any case, this _has_ to be the wrong place for duration. In this 
case, I need duration for specifying the relative timing of fictional 
events which have no specific real date or time; I need none of the 
elements in spoken at all, and I've excluded them all. It seems silly to 
be forced to include a module when you don't want any of its elements.

I think duration should be pulled in automatically by namesdates as well 
as by spoken. I'm not sure of the mechanism for doing this, though. 
Should I put in a ticket for this?
