I guess having one's brain jogged is good [grin],
*but* before you start reorganizing your citations
based on a somewhat theoretical discussion, make
sure that what you might change TO is at least as
good as what you would be changing FROM.
For examples: a direct quotation from a source
document that pertains to the Tag's information
does, in my opinion, qualify as "a detail of how
the Source supports the Tag". So does a page
number, if the Source is defined as an entire book.
Just be careful. The most important thing is that
*you* are clear on how it is that you want to go
All that being said, I find it very helpful to
work using the principles I have suggested. It
doesn't always make such a big difference
immediately, but from time to time a program
update (or a complete program change ... shudder),
or the appearance of a new "type of data", will
create a massive headache when it really needn't
have done so.
Jogging my own brain too ...
