Lists of Index References

By allowing the data field to an index reference rather than a packet different structures of indexes can be built. However, there is often a requirement to have one index element refer to multiple indexes. That is, the data field is a list of index references rather than a single index reference. This allows one index to reference a whole conference for example, and have playback via that index, and have all the conference specific annotations attached to that index.
