If I understand the previous discussions about P5, one solution would
be to import a vocabulary that supports this kind of tagging, like
Bruce Robertson's HEML (http://heml.mta.ca/heml-cocoon/description). I
think for a prosopographic module, it would be worth looking at this
anyway, as it covers some of the same ground and a good deal of thought
has gone into it.
