And I think an indicator of some sort will make it easier (perhaps some
quick visual clue instead of a number? like [***]=, just occured to me
that it might be easier for quick communication. You just see the
number, you don't have to read the arabic numeral :)).

Good luck with that -- it is truly a lot of work (and a lot of legacy to
deal with, I suppose).
