SDD stands for Structure of Descriptive Data - doesn't seem to me to do the
job, and I just thought it would be sensible for the standard to have a
different name from the group.

Of course, if we use SDD in the end, then the bottle of port is unclaimed.

By the way, I'd better correct my last email. Make that a cheap bottle of
Portugues port.
