Sorry, I might have overreacted to your negative unrelated post about a positive
initiative :)

But if you are planning to do something positive as well, it's perfect. With
code, it's always easier to talk about something than to actually do

Your idea seems good but doesn't look easy to implement and would mean a major
change in Drupal spaghetti code. I don't see how it could fit without rewriting
major portions of code both in core and in modules. And in the end, you might as
well end up with limited functionality and an implementation that requires hacks
to let you do what you want.

If it's working, don't fix it :)
Anyway, good luck.
