could you explain a bit more how they work?
Am I right that:
{name} is the standard file and will be used for everything as long as 
no other is used
{display_name} will be used as unique (or additional?) tool tip on 
GPS/Mapsource as well as for routing instructions.

{ref};{int_ref};{nat_ref};{ref_ref} will be used as additonal tooltip 
AND appended to the {name}. Is the appending to {name} somewhere in 
mkgmap code configurable? (the display_name patch did somthing like this)
Or is the {display_name} actually written to one of theese ref* fields?
