Further theory after rereading the Wikipedia article: most nomics last
a sufficiently short time that they're dead before they're mentioned,
so only long-time active nomics get a chance at being linked in a non-
defunct state. (There are plenty of nomics mentioned but they're nearly
all dead, so I didn't mentally count them.)
