Well, for 4.7.x page and story nodes, it's easy to implement.  How easy would 
it be for Drupal 5 nodes, where every node is essentially a CCK node?  Then 
add in actual CCK fields?  Now it gets quite complicated indeed, unless 
you're OK with random data loss along the way.

"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
