Re-reading this, I realise that the terms _M and _FOM are not very
transparent.  It might be preferable to substitute_value and _type.

Thus the example would become:

 _pd_index_merit_value      21.7
 _pd_index_merit_type       'M20'
 _pd_index_merit_source     'ITO12'

which is, I think, rather clearer.
