Would a better set of names for transcription detail then maybe be high,=
medium and low?
It's a small issue and there is no protected definiton of 'level'. I just=
found myself confused at first.

I'm afraid that won't work. The three levels we have distinguished do
not represent different types of analysis; they represent levels of
compliance with the standard that we have proposed. Level-2
transcriptions include all constituents of level-1 transcriptions but
add more; level-3 transcriptions either include or improve all
constituents of level-2 transcriptions.
