You can't fix these things in advance. There's no agreed-upon
descriptive language of sound,
or even a list of parameters that contribute to the identity -- the
human centered meaningfulness --
of a sound. . Yet consider this:

These sound effect names must have been intelligible to his readers en
masse. It shows
how much suppleness and imagination is available to evolve a language
for sound.

If Don showed up at the wiki I certainly wouldn't want to thrust a
turn-off in his
face like checkboxes. I'd rather have the full brunt of his personality.
