The Grinch in me sees this discussion and harks back to research for
the AAA Committee that resulted in our recommending against the use
of any sort of hold-down or splicing tape (except for temporary use
of splicing tape to make or extend leaders that are too short for a
tape player) because of the danger of bleeding adhesives (and I've
never found any type of splicing or hold-down tape that did not bleed
goo onto tape surfaces or that was peelable without some sort of
deposit or damage). I wish my experience were more helpful, but facts
