I should have been clearer. First pass was a touch and go.

So we're replacing Lit/Dark with 2 values?
A numeric Lighting Level AND Internally Lit/Not
Internally Lit? Seems redundant, unless...

When a Room's Lighting Level is at least one, it is Lit; otherwise, it is

...'at least one' in the second sentence above connotes
that a Lighting Level higher than one is possible. It does to
me. Yet I don't see a mechanism for implementing this.
And if it can be higher than one, why not less than zero?

None of the above does anything to define precedence of
any effects field over any other. It all just seems to add the
unnecessary aliases of Internally Lit for Lit and Not Internally
Lit for Dark.
It seems your intention is 1/0 in a boolean sense, but "at least
one" belies that. Is there a companion proosal or addendum to
this one you're not letting on about yet?
Seems superfluous to me as yet.
