This sounds like a better approach than stopping forward progress on a
nearly drafted spec.  Is there an existing template for suggesting

Given that, I would still like to suggest that the tests "and" and "or" be
defined in the draft spec. as synonyms, if not the primary names, for
"allof" and "anyof", respectively.  The former are almost universally
intuitively understood everywhere, whereas the latter are, let's say, unique
to this draft.

Thanks for the feedback.
