For a long time, we have had the notion that e.g. <orgName> is syntactic sugar for <name type="org"> and we even have an example of @type="org" in the Guidelines:

http://www.tei-c.org/release/doc/tei-p5-doc/en/html/ref-name.html

Why does Simple adopt the unconventional <name type="organization">?

<name type="placeGeog"> is even weirder, alongside <name type="place">. Aren't all geographical names places? Why not <name type="geog">?

Even worse: it's actually "organisation" with an "s".

Hmm. Suspicions on fall on either an American (hypercorrecting the Anglo-American 'organization' to a putative British '*organisation') -- or someone French using French spelling.

Nasty one. You're probably right, i just dont like the idea of perpetuating
a short non-word like "org". Will change this.

Não sou nada.

Nunca serei nada.

Não posso querer ser nada.

À parte isso, tenho em mim todos os sonhos do mundo.
