I've looked over the latest version of the table with the above in mind.

Wrestled a bit, and finally landed on 'yes', but want to record the 
thoughts justifying removing fields:

    ID: the _Node Name field really does serve that purpose well enough

    Purpose: The text that was there for most of the entries was 
mechanically redundant with information in other fields for the entry.

    Control: I've added overall text in a bulleted list before the 
table, that handles the 'authority' issue for each entry.
