	Given recent comments, mine and Ed. Rybicki's. could there by any
objection to called viroids (or perhaps certain satellite RNAs) RNA plasmids.
The natural objection, as I see it, is that plasmids are defined as DNA
molecules.  But in all other attributes, viroids would seem to be the RNA
equivalent.
