Might be good to make it possible to add space within there. Eg. column 
heading. Possible ways could be either allow type:value%n.n='column heading' 
or add tag_delim to report, which defaults on space or whitespace.

Perhaps name/id tag. Can't figure out much else.

This might help. For example 'cusp' could be adapted if the sequence and start 
and end points could be dropped. Perhaps this can be done in some report 
format, would need to check.

I think there is those '-noscore' etc which do similar thing. Of course all 
"standard" tags then need to be named and added to there.
