Hi Paul,

thank you for spotting the misuse of the ref tag. Clearly, this should 
be cleaned up.

I've checked the history for some objects and contacted two users 
(erwin6330, sulagaloh; no blaming intended) who've added this tag in 
order to find out their intent for doing so.

Regards from Tyrol,
