I agree absolutely! From a certain distance they are the same. That's why I've
come to my anti-DisplayTerm (and anti "as its in the index") position.

The text: "The term, exactly as it appears in the index." does not reflect our
agreement on "anything goes". It must be changed to reflect our paradigm.

That's OK. Get rid of DisplayTerm and you can use extraTermData in your
profile to include a displayed term... I can use it for help, hints etc. As an
optional element I think we all get our cake!

And how about we change the wording for value (and the optional DisplayTerm)
in Scan?
