Those would be ancillary if at all. We already have "fairly comprehensive"
support for the "basic traits". No need to dump them in a generic table.

Unfortunately, only Horst knows where this "whitepaper" is. I recall
discussion on how to generate the PUPIC 2-3 years back and Horst mentioned a 
several times so I assume one exists somewhere. If not would you like to
search the archives (google and lists) and post a short
piece for disucssion ? I would certainly comment on that. It would then be
included with the Dev Guide.

I'm still a bit handicapped CVS-wise but that should change within the next
2 days.
