there is an extension to UDF that allows decorating nodes (which
identify grammar entitites) with their types; look or UDX here:


i expect the default derivation reader in [incr tsdb()] accepts UDX,
but i would not want the redundant information to go into actual
profiles (they are bulky enough already).  so, if you were to go down
this route, i would recommend that ACE by default output UDF when
producing [incr tsdb()] format, and that the additional pieces of UDX
be activated by a separate switch?

cheers, oe
