Proposals related to special characters in CIF2 tags:

1.  implicitly defined element tags

1.1.  For any CIF 2 tag that defines an array or a list the appearance

Agreed.  There is potential for misunderstanding here which I will address in a separate reply.

Actually, not agreed.  The parser would assign values to the individual elements, so there is no need for any implicit definitions of each array element.
