```To be clear, I think Rui's solution is perfectly fine and probably better
than what I offer below. But just for fun, I wanted to do it without the
lapply().  Here is one way. I think my comments suffice to explain.

ID1 ID2   text    1  2
1  A1  B1 NONE_. NONE  .
2  A1  B1  cf_12   cf 12

4  A2  B2  X2_25   X2 25
5  A2  B3  fd_15   fd 15
