If you make plots with more axes, you can have x2, x3, etc as well. Certains styles allow also for other names, like dx for x error bars in the symbol style. There is no (not yet) default when ommitting those specifications needed to use the style. The symbol style needs an x and y value to be used at a xygraph. Thats the general concept ...
