Yes, it was just an idea. Without buy in for this or something similar, 
it won't make progress. It would be easy to implement at the server 
side. I had intended to do a prototype, but I ended up with a large 
contract to do something else after SOTM 2010 so I wasn't in a position 
to. But it won't work as an adjunct - it has to be part of the system 
and in particular share the same credentials.

My thought re the wiki page was that that or equivalent would be 
generated automatically from the schema, a bit like tag watch is done, 
only a more friendly presentation and, because definitions would be 
stored (and in multiple languages), more descriptively.
