Yes, but I still wonder if they're necessary in our courts and how they
were handled in period.  I'm afraid the only datum I have is modern:
at the coronation of the monarch of the UK, only *one* member of
each rank of the nobility comes forward to swear fealty (the most
senior peer of each rank?).  Then again, the House of Lords has
some 1200 people or so, and there's a standard oath in the UK.

(Hmmm ... one oath *could* be just "I, Tivar Moondragon", then.)
