re: last message about meta-names.
I re-read it and it seems confusing so...

>to be named...
true, but a simple >constructed (on the fly) meta-name works:
Description of "some description"
which isn't stored on the backend, but is constructed by the FE.
This avoids the infinite recursion of name of "name of '...'"
If somebody >wants< to change the name, it may be possible to store
the new description. Whether we'll support that in full, glorious
recursive style in the first FE is another question...
