Well, before I can develop an opinion, I'd be interested in the motivation and/or expected benefits for the proposed modifications. My first *feeling* (note, nothing more than a feeling!) is that things that belong to an external representation and a user interface should not be part of the data stored in some database. Another aspect might be multi-language support. Of coure, you can translate the syntactic sugar into syntactic salt :-) BTW, my feeling (again) with regard to the continuation stuff is that it might make sense to improve things. As it stands right now, it is not really simple to comprehend (for humans). Give me more input, then I can make up my mind. Best regards, Wilfried.
