A response from Dr. Tom Pullum:

You are right. The subscript "02" refers to the next-to-last child. In lower case notation, which I prefer, bord_02 is the birth order of that child.

In the KR and BR files, the "b" variables do not have subscripts. The subscript is given with the variable "bidx". The next-to-last child is the one with bidx=2, and the birth order for that child is the value of "bord".
