Hi Joris,

I'm talking of the specification of the concept *tag*. A tag can have an array of values. SubIFD is a tag. The SubIFD specification should not be able to overwrite that behaviour localy.

Yes, I agree that *any* tag can have any number of values. But don't we have to apply a degree of restraint here to try to adhere to the original intent of the tag definition? Otherwise it becomes a bit of a free-for-all.

But maybe that ship has sailed.
