Possible advantages of replacing the Peccei-Quinn U(1) quasisymmetry by a group of genuine flavor symmetries are pointed out. Characteristic neutral Nambu-Goldstone bosons will arise, which might be observed in rare K or decays. The formulation of Lagrangians embodying these ideas is discussed schematically.
