Sounds like it may be similar in some ways to the papyrologists distinction
between "literary" (written for unknown wider audience to read; published) and
"documentary" (everything else) papyri, with "sub-literary" (e.g. for a
restricted wider audience, as in "magical" recipes) complicating the formal
simplicity of it all.
