I think perhaps we should look at more semantic data types than just  
float and integer.

A good example of this would be a title type. Which defaults to  
textfield, and automatically does the plaintext validation and  
formatting on output.

The same with 'markup' or similar, which automatically expands to a  
widget that has format selectors.

'id' field type could also be useful.

Especially when integrated into a query builder, and even if only for  
constructing crud functions such as drupal_load('objecttype', 'id1',  

Personally I'm more interested in working on the data model side of  
things, and how it ties into the CRUD functions. I've already made a  
start at that in the stuff i did for drupalcon.
