Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] (EMERGENCY-10) Use Area Description field to name polygons

    [ https://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/EMERGENCY-10?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=37646#comment-37646 ] 

Art Botterell commented on EMERGENCY-10:

By the same token, if the multiple areas can be described by a single label, they probably should be a single Area.    In other words, I'm thinking we should look to help originators make better use the existing <areaDesc> field before asking them to populate another, potentially redundant element.

And of course having redundancy or semantic overlap among fields is almost always a bad thing in the structured-data context because it raises the problem of what to do if the two values conflict.
