I agree with what Bernard says, so I make no comments on that part of
his reply.

If that's the case the SAM fails to, and must fail to, conform in this
regard. There can be more than one subject indicator, and there are
two other properties used for merging.

In addition comes the PSI defined in section 5.4.
