It would be stored internally for reference. Think strtok.

Sort of...there are multiple fields with the same name in various records that 
make up an event. The idea is that you can pass the name one time and then 
its stored internally until another call replaces it.

This is true. An example is uid. I think there are some places where the 
kernel inserts uid and userspace inserts uid to the same event.
