Thanks Felix,

That's basically what I meant by a "bundle of attributes", but you are right that it doesn't look nice.

I guess this question doesn't need to be resolved immediately, but for the sake of consistency, I will take the "ugly" approach in the examples I draft (unless they are already done the other way) and we can discuss in Dublin. I will also use the "its-" prefix as you show below.
