With VID, you do need a spec sheet. With text-list for instance,
data's not enough. There's picked and other words you need to know
This is mainly a docs problem though. Currently you have to guess
that "Data: Used by VID for storing other information about the face.
Outside of VID this field can be freely used by programs." means, in
relation to check, where its checked state is stored. Let's hope
that View book is out soon...
