It's legal as far as I know, and we have often used numbers as part of
tag names in WormBase (as your example shows with the '5_UTR' tag).
Never been aware of any querying problems though, but then I hardly ever
use AQL. If it is a number-related problem, you could maybe check by
writing an AQL query against the '2_point' tag in the ?Rearrangement
class. If you still get a bug, then this should be enough info for the
acedb guys to track it down (note though that Ed is on holiday at the
