This has nothing to do with my grand scheme for awards.  Re-read the
post.  I pointed out that the current designations of the names of awards
are skewed.  There is nothing wrong with rewarding people.  But, I think
it should reflect the medieval system a little better.  

But, I do think that more people should recognize the quiet work of others
and recommend them for recognition to the various barons/esses, Queen,
King etc. etc.
