This seems to echo the "why make nodes when you've got flexinode" idea that 
was floated a while back.  The answer then and now being "because sometimes I 
don't want my data's definition and structure in the database, I want it in 
code where I don't have to do everything twice between a beta site and live 

Unless there's going to be some way to resync node field changes from a beta 
site to live site as easily as uploading a new version of a module, let's not

"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of 
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, 
which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to 
himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession 
of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it."  -- Thomas
