Default [Bio-Tech] Quirk and Meta-Trait Abbreviations

Right. Sorry to be asking so many questions lately. The GURPS time of the year seems to be very involved this time around. Anyway, here's another query thread. (Yes, before you ask, I have searched for the answer in Bio-Tech, Power-Ups 6: Quirks, the Basic Set, the internet, and the forum. I'm so confuzzled!)

Under the Quirks section in Bio-Tech (p BT212), the Allergy quirk has "[P]" listed after its entry and the Nano-Fever quirk has a "[P, X]" after its entry. These same notations can be found in brackets beside the Enhancement Meta-Traits heading (p BT213) and also beside the Biotech Meta-Traits heading (p BT214).

What do these two notations mean?

The [P] most likely stands for "Physical", while the [X] probably means "Exotic". Not sure why they didn't use the symbols from the Basic Set, but I suspect a layout editing issue.

I thought about that, too, Phantasm, and I think you're right. Huzzah!
