Oh dear. Here we go again, on an unacknowledged distinction between
"character" and "character state"! In the latter terminology only a
CHARACTER STATE can be primitive, etc. If John wishes to adhere to an
older, confused terminology, it's his privilege to do so - but he's
going to find trouble in discussions in TAXACOM.
