Excellent.  I'll start updating S05 and A05 to match.

While we're on the topic, can we also bless <+alnum-digit> as
the official syntax instead of <+<alnum>-<digit>> ?  I can make

And I think I have another post brewing regarding the relationship 
between character classes and subrules, but will save that for a bit
