I have received no less than three persistent prompts that I grade these answers, almost immediately after submission. I am choosing therefore this answer, as it provides other alternatives, which is what I was looking for. I see now that I had already entered in my electronic dictionary the term purview, which sometimes can be a nicer fit. Still searching, I'll keep you posted.
