    That's not strictly true -- a bunch of them say `Drewry' or `Cosh'.
    However I agree that the WGB's attitude to crediting authors and citing
    sources can only be described as extremely lax.
    
    I also agree with Peter Hastings in that programmes (or cribs) should
    really mention a published source for a dance, if available, in addition
    to the deviser's name. This is not as much of an issue now that we have
    DanceData, but still this is helpful information that costs nothing to
    include and ought to be provided as a matter of course.
