I can imagine that this practice could already have ignited a
'movement' against it, and that the power of the
studios and actors/directors/crew could have some effect in
changing this abysmal practice.   The credits are part of the
film, until the last frame, --could there even be a SMPTE or
BKSTS standard regarding this?

Foley Edito:  a self-powered plastic sound effects generator
               formerly called the Edit-O

you know I've forgotten the answer to this, though I worked in
production (but it was video where the DP was called the Lighting
Director, and other differences applied, like there was no best boy)

The apparatus allowing you to hold onto your car-entrance device
whey you're pissed.

...anyway sounds like a good effort Peter, if there's a web reference
to explain end credit categories (I'm sure there is).. someone will
let us know.
