Sometimes I have multiple objects with the same name, ie. Table, wall, floor etc. etc.
It is very hard when you wish to manipulate these objects. In a task for instance, you get a list off all objects and suddenly you have three or four tables, walls etc. not quite knowing where they belong.
I realize that this can be worked around by calling them different names, like the wooden table, or the simple table, but if you have several walls, floors and ceilings (remember: The player should be able to examine any object mentioned in a description.)
I thought it would be a neat thing if in the object menu to have a tag box for your own personal reference and it will show in object list in [ ] next to its name, but not in the game.
Like you can do with locations where a text within a < > isn't shown in the runner.

I have already added it to the enhancement list, but I just thought I'd share it... ;)
