Like Romney's c.v., "hommage" raises suspicions of darkest francophilia (and 
perhaps related -philias too).

Contrast this more lightly Teutonic entry from Root's 'Dictionary of 

"Festschrift: The ultimate accolade. Everyone gets one."

Hommage rhymes with 'fromage' btw
Of which it often has a metaphorical whiff
