What does:

Cross Mid "

or

Cross Mid ΓΈ

mean?

Where 'Cross Mid' is the name of my positiongroup.

It normally notates a pallete assignment in a fixture but the palette is actually empty.

This normally results from when you "Move" or "Copy" attributes form one fixture that is in a palette,
but the target fixture is empty in that palette reference.

It is the result of importing a .SSF I think. Could it be possible that such things appear if you record a position look with all the attributes switched on and then switch a couple of them off?
And how does that actually works? Is it not recording that specific attribute in the look if you record or update it or is it not pulling it from the look if you recall it? Is the information still there?

The easiest way for it to happen, is to record a fixture in a palette.
Reference that palette in a cue.
Knock that fixture out of a palette and update it.
When you run the cue, the palette reference is still there, but there is no information in the palette regarding that fixture.

Back to the request of two kinds of palettes - ala GrandMA. I know some don't particularly like the desk but that feature is handy. See viewtopic.php?f=30&t=1111 among other for more detail.
