Yes, it's obvious that creating another tag with a different prefix
later can not be the idea of such tags. So, if a tag can't be renamed
later (which I can understand due to reference reasons, seeing the
problems that have arisen after the last series of SIL code
renamings...), let's just take sxu as prefix.
