This is so far the most understandable difference I've seen so far --
assuming it is correct.

But still it would contradict the usage of {boch} for a "shiny nose",
because I doubt that a nose is able to refelect an image and I would
think that a shiny nose, i.e. if coated with suntan lotion for instance,
would be considered "glossy", but not shiny.
