I like this extension of the basic cheatsheet structure, but I wonder if we could make the term "trn" a bit more generic. It's likely that other information, not just transliteration, could be put in parentheses after the value. I'm struggling with a good 3-letter name but something similar to "other", "extra", "misc", etc. What do you think?
