Ya think?  I should have written

Seriously, we have list mistresses who aren't necessarily Mistresses
(id est, companions of a peerage), Earl Marshals who aren't earls,
Knight Marshals who aren't knights, Masters/Mistress of Arts and
Sciences (officers) who aren't M/Ms.  In my personal opinion,
adding the adjective can be enough difference (and translation
into Latin, the mark of coolness, covers one's tracks nicely).
