my bad; come from pre-history where var names are too long and use memory. 
cbDefn originally stood for "call back definition" and originally we intended it 
for really simple stuff like indexing which didn't use any width etc etc, but it 
got reused as the carrier of information for the img tag since it was the one 
non-regular thing we were already doing in the break lines and similar functions.

If you have a good use case please post some small example so we can see how it 
looks. If it seems useful perhaps it can be rolled into RL.
