Thank you Jean, it's very helpful to know this.

Hmm, that's a neat idea. While I'm asking, is there any performance problem
with having many tags available at the same point in a model? There are
about 250 different country codes for example.

I don't think I ever need this auto-XREF feature of ?Text. I've been
changing most of my texts from Text to ?Text partly because of bugs in Text
(historical; the only current one I know of is the Tablemaker querying
problem I mentioned recently) and partly because I'd thought it was stored
more efficiently than ?Text. I guess I had it backwards.
