curiously, this came up at the meeting of the TEI Technical Council last
week in another context;
the desire there was for something called <ornament>, which I think is
the same as your flourish.
I am not sure there *is* a consistency, however. A flourish between two
paragraphs is not the same as
<p rend="boxed">Finis</p>, surely? horizontal rules are different again,
as are bracketed groups.
Are you sure you want a single solution?
of your suggestions:
<seg type="flourish" rend="below"><graphic n="4" /></seg>
is evil, omitting the url from <graphic>. I'd call that abuse.
<trailer><seg type="box">finis</seg></trailer> looks fine to me, though the
@rend version below may be more natural.
<g type="flourish" subtype="..." rend="below" /> I could (cautiously) buy.
both seem fine
