Sure it is: you just used it several times above.  A dictionary is not a legal document.

> It's perhaps worth pointing out that an "indulgent" person is a person who indulges. [...]

I listed "indulgent" thinking of being "indulgent to" -- that is, deriving from the transitive version of the verb "to indulge" (which is the first meaning).  My thinking was that being indulgent to someone is to invite (cause) more behavior of the same kind.  Thinking more about this, however, makes me realize that this adjective is not part of the group listed about, as "indulgent" does not cause indulgence.

I'll see how you laugh when the "ack-eliciting" beast lands and you have to a) say or think it and b) make enums like `FRAME_ACK_ELICITING`.  Blech!
