When canonical="true", it means that the content of that element is a part
of the text being encoded. For example, the "text" of the Bible includes the
content of books, chapters, and verses but does not include notes,
section-headings added by editors or translators, etc. Therefore, the
default value for elements such as note is false, as the content of that
element has been added by an editor or author to the text being encoded. /It
should be explicitly noted that the value of the canonical attribute should
not be used to reflect theological judgment about the content of a text, but
merely to distinguish between what has been added to the text and what has

I'm citing this merely as a reminder, since newcomers to this list may not
fully appreciate what this attribute is for.
