Are you relinking straight to the stage location, or relinking and then
copying? The ofrmer is the ideal, but the later is what is implemented in
V1. It was just too complicated/hard to do the ideal in V1.

Seems right to me.

It tries, don't remember how well it succeeds, to do the same.

By the way... it will probably be easier to write the stage rule once the
modifier stuff I posted is in better working order. For eaxmple to stage
with relink to the stage location is matter of generating the new target
(with additional properties) and modfy it to build (locate) at the stage
