To the Editor: In a remarkable book, A Research Agenda for DSM-V(1), 46 international experts proposed far-reaching research that could eventually lead to diagnoses based more on etiology than on symptom syndromes. I offer a suggestion for improving DSM-V that would require little or no research. I suggest deleting the term "statistical" from the title of the manual, thereby making it the "Diagnostic Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition." The abbreviation would become DM-V—or, perhaps better—DMMD-V. Here is my rationale for the suggested change.
