Then association starts to feel like an attribute to me.

Anyway, Larry pushed back a bit and I feel like I was stepping out of
bounds making too many changes without WG approval, so I went back to
association and took out info.

I plan to publish V5.1b1 momentarily, so we'll have lots to talk about
later in the month! :-)
