Subject: We need a better term


Thanks for your answer.  Before I respond to technical details, 
I would like to talk about terminology.

I have used "hedges" to refer to zero or more trees possiblly prepended, 
interespersed, and followed by characters.  Your <a,c> is more than 
my hedges; it is a hedge together with a collection of attributes.  

You wrote "tree", but it is very misleading.  We need a better term.  
How about "attributed hedge"?
