Right now we should merely have clear terminology in the discussion.  The 
language keywords can be finalized later.

Note that 'interpret' within a local proof context is also without 
subscription -- as a consequence of how that works.

I also agree with you now that 'private' should be just about superficial 
name space issues (potentially with notation, i.e. things of the 
"syntax_declaration" category).  So it can stay outside of the 
considerations here.
