Yes. The idea is that it indicates a "partial identification" --- you
will be told some properties when you apply something.

No. Unless there is some double-use.

Be careful with weapon merging --- for some weird reason not all
properties of an object are compared. When I fixed the archetypes
and some special items to allow stuff to be merged I had to remove
it again since it suddenly started to merge weapons (and probably
other stuff) that were not completely identical (although it would
have been neat: it merged a plain dragonbane and my beefed-up
dragonbane into two beefed-up dragonbanes --- saves some work for
the players :-))
