* Why is `org-element-affiliated-keywords' a var when `org-element--affiliated-re' is a const?

Dear all,

I want to add my own org-element affiliated keyword "REF" in order 
to provide a reference to some other part of an org mode document 
(or another document) for a link.

For example:

#+NAME: a-figure
#+REF: [[file:another_document.org]]
[[file:a-figure.png]]

I want to use `org-element-context' to get the link element and 
use `org-element-property' to get the `REF' property.

I tried changing `org-element-affiliated-keywords' in order to 
define my own keyword. This is never picked up by 
`org-element-context' since it uses `org-element--affiliated-re' 
which is defined as a const and thus is never updated to reflect 
the change to `org-element-affiliated-keywords'. The help text for 
`org-element--affiliated-re' even mentions changing 
`org-element-affiliated-keywords'.

Is this an oversight or am I trying to use this is a way that is 
not intended?

Johan

Syntax is not meant to be changed by users. Also,
`org-element-affiliated-keywords' is a defconst.

You might abuse #+header: affiliated keyword to add a reference.

Oh, yes you are of course right. Somehow I got the definition 
mixed up, must have been looking at the definition in 
'org-pcomplete.el' or something. Sorry about that.

OK, thanks. I will give it a try.
