Perhaps, you can (ab)use @Label for this?  See User's Guide, section
5.3 Labeled (as opposed to numbered) references.

Since Lout is not reflective (like, e.g. Lisp is), available
parameters of @Reference must be known in several places in the dsf
package.  You can use a modified copy of include/dsf for your document
but you need a coordinated change across dsf and data/refstyle.ld as
