Transcription decisions

Hello all, 

I'm studying the manuals and some existing transcripts as I learn to 
transcribe in CLAN, and I have some questions... I want to do some basic 
annotation of events such as the child turning a page or pointing at a 
picture (not necessarily accompanied by talk). Judging by the manuals it 
seems I can either transcribe an event like this as a turn, as in (1), or I 
can do on a dependent tier, as in (2)
 
(1) *CHI: 0 [&=turns:page]

(2) *CHI: 0
%com: [&=points:picture]

Does it matter which of these formats I use? And will it affect my later 
analyses of MLU etc (i.e., is an event counted as a turn but not an 
utterance if there is no accompanying talk indicated by the "0")? Finally, 
if both participants are pointing at the pictures simultaneously, would 
this go on a %com dependent tier?

Many thanks for your help. 
Amber
