Duration parts in NwcTxt

When something on the staff has a duration, can there be anything else in the Dur: field outside of note length, dot or triplet status, and presence of a slur?  If I need to change the duration of a note or chord, I need to keep the slur intact.

Anything else to be on the alert for? I need to clear this up before converting ThreeEight.html to a user tool.

TIA

Thank you. I had a feeling it wouldn't be as simple as I first thought.

Same type of question but what else can be in the Opts: field besides Stem and Beam info?
