If they are presentational, and they are, they don't belong in the lexical database, as Sebastian has indicated.

We could add tags to mark certain parts of the entries as purely presentational. Then users of the TEI dictionaries could choose to keep or strip those parts however they want.

<form type="infl">stiehl<fd:present>!</fd:present></form>
