I think Marke is compressing spaces out in his analysis, so one would need
to make sure that unique words didn't arise from unique spacing.
However, I was wondering the same thing.  It's analogous to accounting for
the labels.  (One disadvantage of approaching the VMs. via transcription
files is that you tend to lose the perception of the labels as such.)
