I'm not clear about what you mean here, especially about "put together"! Can you describe what you want to end up with in more detail?

In any case, I would not use the names "A+" and "A-", since this provides too many opportunities for expressions involving these to be interpreted as arithmetic operations. Better, and safer, to use names "A1" and "A0", say.

Best wishes,
Ted.
