I would keep the term "Mariner" for S52 Mariner's objects.
I would rather use the term User choice. Charted objects can only belong to one of the 3 groups: Base, Standard and Other.
If the user selects one of the 3 groups, he will get all the objects belonging to his specific choice. If he wants to change his display by adding objects to Standard, or removing some objects from Others, he can do so but he can only do it if he chooses the "user" .
So there are 3 groups of objects, but there are 4 choices of display for the navigator : Base, Standard, Other and User.
One thing to keep in mind, we cannot remove any object that belong to the Base group.
On some ECDIS, this classification is not clear. On others, it is too permissive.
I hope that these few words clarify the subject.
