I'll chime in on Beverly's side, though I'm not happy with
that politically incorrect reference to "deep kimchee."
How would you like it if some Korean writer referred to
"deep cornflakes"? (Or, er, are you Korean?)

There are plenty of occasions when the grammatical implications
of the technology we're writing about are too fresh to be
properly reflected in our reference books. And the techwr-l
community may understand better what we're talking about than
the copyediting-l community would.
