Dear Greg:

Traditionally Granville Sharp's rule is defined as not applying to proper
names. Arguing that semantic equivalents are are also excluded goes beyond
the scope
of the rule, in my opinion. I'd like to know how you came to include "terms
carrying the semantic weight of proper names" in your definition, since this
is an addition to how Sharp's rule is usually defined.
