The context isn't too useful for values either. I'm not sure about
putting the information in the fifth (argument) part of the context.
For values the fourth (command) part is just set to -value-. What I
would suggest is that we use the fourth part of the context. It is
currently defined as the command so it would make sense to use it as
the dispatch key. So we could have contexts which are something like:


Exact format could be different. My point is about what component of
the context is used.

This looks like another example of why default tag-orders as I
described before would be a good idea.
