Very cool. Tried a similar one

One thing I was wondering was how to encapsulate the URI of the event 
itself, something like (completely incorrect syntax, but you get the 
idea again)

Indeed. I tossed the original example just to push the general idea of 
encapsulation without much thinking about what correct separators should 
be.

I'll stay tuned to further developments. Curious to have Gustavo 
feedback on this.
