I strongly accociate REF with "reference" ... how about RFC? Uh, strong 
association, too. FAC? Could do.

No problem here, I can add any tags you want ;-)

Still, I would consider refactorings to be enhancements for readability 
and maintainability, which are crucial qualities in an authoring 
environment. So I'd prefer posting these with an [ENH] tag. Also I 
prefer to have as few tags as possible. Cognitive load, you know ;-)

Anyway, if you want me to add anything, just let me know.
