Re: OGIP/93-013 - A list of standard strings for HE missions,instruments & filters.

How logical or useful would an additional keyword be to specify the optic used
for the instrument? For our ALEXIS telescopes, the multilayer mirrors in each
telescope are just as important to specify as the filter in front of the
detector since the mirror specifies the bandpass. For other projects, perhaps
several flight type optics were prepared but only one used? In this case, I was
thinking of an "OPTIC" or "MIRROR" keyword.
