I'd say you've got it, Don. <g>
There is a way to get memo contents to appear in footnotes, but they
apply to all tags, not just the ones you care about, so I don't regard
them as particularly useful for your purpose.
I add the <[M]> variable to most Tag Types that do not already have
it, which includes the default DBMB tags, precisely so I can use it to
add various details about that event. In those cases were I don't want
the memo to print, I add an exclusion mark or sensitivity brackets.
