Sadly, overloaded TLAs in computing are commonplace.

(TLA = Three-Letter Acronym. 4-letter acronyms are known as ETLAs:
Extended Three-Letter Acronyms.)

DOM in the WWW context means Document Object Model. DOM in the
motherboard/electronics context means Disk On Memory (i.e. a small,
primitive SSD.)

DLC in the games context meand DownLoadable Content. DLC in the
context of printers or networks means Data Link Control, an IBM/HP
network protocol.

And so on.

We need to look at the context for these 2+ uses of OMI in Oberon. It
could well be _both_...
