this is a fair answer to my questions, not an evasion -- you're
selecting level 0 in both tracks, which is not a bad thing (it's

The outstanding question in my mind is whether those tags could be
mistaken by a na?ve user for meaning one of the other concepts.  Is
there a way to name the tags to minimize that kind of confusion?
