** knowing the Lavish family, this could be a) because no one wants to be sued for mentioning them (FridgeBrilliance ?) or simply b) they're so damn petty and mean that no one wants to acknowledge them unless it's required. They didn't do anything important in the previous books, so everyone's narrative ignored them!

Added DiffLines:

** also a meta-version for the Lavishes: the adjective of 'lavish' means 'sumptuously rich, elaborate or luxurious', and the Lavish family are definitely that. Also, the Lavishes mentioned by name are all named after luxury items: i.e. Cosmo = Cosmopolitan, a cocktail that is generally regarded as sophisticated; for added PTerry trademark wordplay, cosmopolitan is also a term meaning worldly-wise and experienced in the world at large. Pucci = fashion house that came to prominence during the 1950's; fans include Marilyn Monroe, and Madonna.

** And guess what: in the next book, ''Discworld/RaisingSteam'', Moist acquires a set of railway stations as a necessary incidental detail. A possible future ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' book mentioned by Pterry, ''Running Water'', may deal with piped water supplies and sewage works - more public utilities... and Adora's clacks line is the local version of the telephone company...
