I support moving reference processing into the core. This is how mutant 
worked. It is certainly a core responsibility.

It should only be done for addXXX methods. By the core-task contract 
those are the elements for which the task has given the core the 
responsibility for creating the element instance. For createXXX, the 
task is saying that it is in control and it needs to do its own refid
