No, changing the tag isn't the only change.  UI and/or new built-in LSL 
functions must be made, those would generate the proper string on the 
new tag number from then on.

Any validation and strong typing would happen there.  For most LSL-tied 
features, it wouldn't require a list at all, rather, the string would be 
constructed from fixed function parameters.

Changing the tag is the only change as far as the feature implementation 
is concerned.  It is not, however, the only change.
