That matches my sense of what people have said about the tagging.  I've
been thinking of them in terms of subsets of a larger network, but since
the subset is largely determined by how it's signed, it amounts to the
same thing.

It seems to me that network=US:US:Business:MD is the logical extension of
a scheme that has US:US and US:US:Business.  I had actually planned on
attaching Maryland's US Business shields to the US:US:Business:MD network
once I made them, but I haven't gotten to those yet.
