That was one of the alternatives I was considering. I was wondering on
the later title, how one indicated where the Canadian stuff wandered to.
Also, I had reservations about calling it a split. The Canadian stuff
apparently has separated from the Life-health and at the same time, they
have adjusted the title of Life-health to reflect the change in content.

That's my headache! Yes, if I understood the Customer Service Representative,
they removed the Canadian material from Property-casualty and I suspect
others as well. (I only have to fuss with the Life-health and Property-
Casualty... :)  If I took the split approach, wouldn't I have to indicate
in a 580 on Life-health, that the other runs like Property-casualty also
split to Canada?  (And vice versa?)

Thanks for responding!
