Yes, although there's also two hacks:
- you can specify an arbitrary OID with ATTRSET(oid/query), but this
syntax only allows you to specify one OID for the whole query (so
it doesn't support Z39.50v3's generality)
- you can specify attributes with "(attrtype,attrval)" syntax, e.g.
you can say "(1,1003)=Monty Python" (the Term is always of type
'general' in this case).

If there's a more standard way of doing either of these, I'd be happy
to hear about it.
