I believe the word you're looking for is '"nullary". Such expressions
were covered in John's original message; I said that the presence of
sigils 'mitigated' the problem, not 'eliminated'. It's one of the
reasons I'm still ambivalent..
Overall, though, it's not a deal-breaker for me one way or the other.
