No, then more terms should be copied from the b-file, instead of adding the "more" keyword..

I think More and Full can come together. Suppose a sequence has some
1,000
elements, all listed in a b-file, but the data-field only lists 2
elements
(6 characters) or so. Then both Full and More apply to the
sequence.
