Thanks, paperback, for wishing me peace of mind.
I am really sorry if I ruined yours ...

There is another theory, expounded on the Deutsche Wikipedia article,
that this "bac" business
is related to "baccalaureate,"
because this literary term targets
a very specific part of adolescent/teen development,
rather like completing a certain school level.
