So maybe we should make a doc from the comments in the master database. I  
don't promise anything, but I'll have a look. If I get a bright idea, I'll  
tell.

1. This doesn't seem to have the master version (with OTxx entries).
2. Anyway, a reasonable doc would seem to be

    grep -v '^\t' termtypes.tc       # (or .ti, should be identical)
