(I'm not sure how this matters, but some ptrs presumably point to
internal elements or anchors in the same file?)
I only suggested type=externalObject because that was the name last

because I thought it was semantically useful in the case of the ptr used
here. Something to remind us that we're coming up with semantic sugar
for this soon...
