index tag with formatting
Make it possible to insert character formatting (italics, superscript, character style sheets) within the tag for the index.

I really need a native way to add italics to index entries. GREP styles is ridiculously cumbersome for thousands of entries, and so is manual formatting. If there is a style applied to a term in ID, I would like a way to specify that the style be preserved in the index.
I agree, currently custom scripting has to be used to format indexes with italics, bold and small caps. This should be something natively possible from InDesign.
I think it is important for those who paginate books to be able to insert the formatting in the TAGs of the index
