MD tags are arcane and poorly spec'd. Even further, many aligners don't emit MD tags. We're currently relying on MD tags for BQSR, INDEL realignment, etc. We should eliminate them from the codebase (and eliminate their "promotion" into the schema upstream?) to both eliminate complexity and to improve robustness.
I've eliminated the use of MD tags downstream in avocado.
