Subject: Re: DOCBOOK: <filename>'s transition to smallcptr.char.mix, 3.x -> 4.x

I would suggest that the more general <varname> be considered as well;
I'm working on a filesystem project where variable expansion in path
names will be a key component.

<varname> seems like a sufficiently general-purpose element to be
considered for smallcptr.char.mix.
