Actually, the use of `a' is problematic, indeed.
Since we really have 8 styles: "", "b", "c", "bc", "n", "bn", "cn", "bcn".
So, "a" doesn't fit very well in there.
It's inherited from earlier times where we had just "" and "b", so ""
could be considered as "a".

So we should probably get rid of the "style `a'" terminology and replace
it with something else.
