I'm neutral on that; it seems obvious to me that the sequences would be
preserved; I'd only expect a notice if they were not (although, I'm not
sure what burst would do that it would change sequence membership).
If someone wants to to propose a change, that's fine with me.

As we've seen, most of those man pages originate from your era, Norm.
How come you guys never mentioned that? :-)
