[JLReq] "adjacent ruby"?

Tony Graham-3
"adjacent" appears to be used in two senses when describing ruby.

Section 3.3.5 contains:

   For mono-ruby, base characters and adjacent ruby characters are
   handled as one object

Section 3.3.6 contains:

   inter-character space between each adjacent ruby character

   inter-character space between each adjacent ruby characters

   inter-character space between each adjacent base character (x2)

   For group-ruby, base characters and adjacent ruby characters are
   handled as one object, and internal line-breaks are prohibited. Also,
   for an object constructed with base characters and adjacent ruby
   characters it is prohibited to insert additional spaces between each
   character for line adjustment.

Section 3.3.7 contains:

   type of script of the adjacent characters

Section 3.3.8 contains:

   spacing between base characters and their adjacent characters in the
   main text

It seems to me that sequential characters are being described as
adjacent and that base and ruby characters are also being described as
adjacent.  Would it be better to use a different word for one of these
two cases?
