exactly the reasons you give, and instead adopted a terminology as
described on the Overview page: "On this site I instead refer to the
_front_, _back_, _top_ and _bottom_ of sarati, the front being the
side facing the following sarat in the reading direction, and the top
being the end always attached to the bar." Perhaps this should be
pointed out in each valuation description as well.
