I don't, so I didn't mention it in the bug report.
(BTW, it's not awful, but I don't like it for two reasons:
* doesn't scale as nicely -- if I've narrowed down the handwriting at
various spots to 7 out of the field of 17 possibles ...
* while the need to express "both A and B" is very unlikely, TEI
should not foreclose that possibility. Of course, if hand= and new=
could point to <link> to express 'and', then separate URIs could be
used to express 'or'.)
