Can the understanding of mentioned details be improved by reconsidering
the usage of abbreviations?


> In the pursuit of aligning both the C and SmPL ASTs,

> add these types to the SmPL ASTs.

* Does such an extension mean a copy of functionality?

* Can any components be shared between affected software areas?
