I have only wound one secondary so far, and a simmilar thought crossed my
mind (use of tape).  As I didn't have any tape I came up with the idea of 
coating the coil form with sealant and allowing to go sticky
before winding the coil.   It did a great job of holding the turns down.
No problems with bubbles afterwards.
