Ah, but I conclude from this that *you* never had the responsibility of
maintaining the roll of precedence.  Ansteorra's is already ungainly; adding an
equal-sized Principality awards structure (or two or three) very likely will
cause the whole thing to collapse (from a records-keeping point of view).
