Jeff and I just discussed on IRC...
Whereas, there's no solid agreement yet on if/how this should happen,
Whereas, even a partial implementation of this to fix $node namespace
bugs would require a massive patch that breaks all of contrib and
every patch in the core queue right now, and
Whereas, neither of us has time for the massive effort it would take
to write and maintain such a patch, and,
Whereas, neither of us want to be responsible for the D6 equivalent
of the "4.7 FAPI debacle" at this late hour in the development cycle,
Whereas, there are lots of other great patches that could use our
collective attention that *do* still have a chance of landing for D6...
Therefore, be it resolved, that we're hereby "throwing in the
towel" (giving up) on trying to get this into D6.
Jeff already added a section on "node structuring" to the DrupalCon
agenda in September. We both agree that giving this proper thought
and doing it completely and early in D7 is the best course of action.
