All of the I18N string tags (SUMMARY/DESCRIPTION/CHANGELOG*) should not be 
included in IDENTITY because the value returned can depend on an envvar, and/or 
external files, and/or macros embedded in text.

Then there are issues with the stat(2) links, where st_mtime/st_rdev/st_inode 
tags should not be included, but (perhaps) the st_nlinks tag that is computed 
from the (dev,Inode) pair should be included in IDENTITY.

A preliminary list of tags to include (not tags to exclude) will hep focus on 
what IDENTITY reproducibility is most useful.
