The semicolon syntax, and all the other suggestions for multiple values,
all give ordered lists. All we need to do is to declare that the first
value is primary or dominant, and we are there. Consumers who are not
ready to handle multiple values in their data models can stop reading
after the first value and they still get a reasonable value to use. It
is a rather inconvenient truth that the real world has multi-valued
attributes, but that is not about to go away.
