I was looking at the code for Tag property in classes unit and noticed I can't safely use Tag to keep runtime pointers (at least on a 64 bit compile). What is the likelihood of getting tags changed to support universal access under 64/32 bit compiles?

What is the logic behind the shortfall? I suspect just legacy and it could be easily fixed.
