We definitely need tagging in the Dictionary, something I'll be pushing 
for as we finally get the ball rolling with the Community Documentation 
Team soon.

With searchable tags anyone can add terms that will help others find 
relevant tokens.

If you were able to add tags to the "owner" Dictionary entry, what would 
those be?  What sorts of terms and concepts come to find when looking 
for ways to refer to objects in the message path?

This list is great, and so are the forums, but IMO people rely on them 
sooner in the process than would be ideal.

LiveCode is a very unusual language so it requires much care in how it's 
presented, and more importantly in it's indexed, so searches can be made 
for concepts and not just keywords.
