Just a short Followup and Summary.

First, standard packages in Ubuntu Bionic including the Packages built
by JonathonF for TeXLive 2018 (*) seem to not yet provide \NI.

(*) The 2019 Packages are broken in the JonathonF repo

Second the non documented \itemtag which should be replaced by \NI
works on my installation

Third i Figured \itemtag also works for \starttable not just for

Fourth this allows me to use \Raise / Lower commands to move \itemtag
to top of my Metapost picture which without would be placed at bottom
of column (**)

(**) I did not manage to get same effect with A{} (alignment) style on
tabulate. I fear i did not get how that works or \itemtag simply
ignores it which would explain amongst others why it stayed

Anyway i do get my Subfigure tags positioned and aligned the way i need

Thank you very much again.

Best Xristoph
