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.
