First of all:  We both mean the same, and we agree how to handle the
problem in groff.  I'm only arguing about technical terms.

Another try.

Consider a PostScript font with its encoding vector.  You have a
single glyph set which can map to multiple encodings.  My intention is
to use the terms `set' and `encoding' in a consistent way -- I want to
avoid that we have to use other words if we are talking about glyphs
instead of characters.
