Yes.  You will also see the following, and more, "in the wild":

_COMM, _FREL _MREL, _GODP, _PRIV, _JUST, _PRIM, _UID

The payload of standard tags can be used in non-standard ways. Using the 
example given earlier:

     0 SOUR
     1 REPO
     2 CALN
     3 MEDI

The REPO tag should contain a pointer in its payload.  However, you will 
also encounter an empty payload (FTM) or a repository name (Heredis 8).

Nick.
