13.13.1 is titled "The Package Streams". 

AI12-0293-1 added a bunch of children to this subclause
(Ada.Streams.FIFO_Streams, etc.).

I was looking for those children to answer a question on comp.lang.ada, and 
skipped right by this clause because of the title. Perhaps we should change 
the title to something a bit more generic?

    "The Package Streams and children thereof" (ugh!)

    "The Packages Streams and Streams.FIFO_Streams" (which still ignores the 
          actual FIFO stream children).

We don't generally do this (put a lot of packages together in a single 
clause), so I can't find a precedent for it.

Thoughts?

10.1 says:
  A root library unit, together with its children and grandchildren and
  so on, form a subsystem.

That suggests either "The Streams subsystem" or "The subsystem Streams".

I like it, but we definitely want to capitalize all of the words in the title.

I would prefer, I think, "The Streams Subsystem"
