the ref tag has a commonly accepted usage, and most of the rendering
and routing engines use it in about the same way. the expectation is that
it's something meaningful for renders. it may be that we want to
evolve it, but just changing it without a plan and some level of agreement,
and declaring that it's the renderers that are wrong, is a recipe mostly for
ticking people off.
