Thanks. I am slightly worried by Urs' comments, though only slightly (One
could argue that the 'author' is the author of the chapter, not the author
of the 'sin' section).

annotate FMPs as being the same as DLMF's equations, not the whole

David Carlisle's comments worries me more, but I need to think about it.
