    1. Intercessory (priestly, substitutionary) prayer identifying with the people's guilt
    2. Prayer in relations to one's forefathers

Conclusion: wiki is stubbornly 'decimal' and ignores all else. If that is the case we will have no other choice.

Wiki's decimal classification is not very helpful. Note under XVI.B.3. instead of simply leting the 3.a and 3.b stand it numbers those items additionally. What is the symbol used to avoid this dual numbering and yet keep the indent? Should we try >>?
