Ehh.  By that definition arn't all sets subsets?  Anyway I didn't see
any confusion with "to set" at all.  subset confused me quite a bit
though.  Besides it might not be a sub set at all.

set types <full half quarter jumbo automatic>;

You could call that a subset of words, but i think this has extra clarity over:

subset types <full half quarter jumbo automatic>;

First thing i think when seeing that is...subset of what? where is the
larger set defined?  Of course I have no knowledge of set theory at
all, just a humble programming giving his input.
