Putting that processing information stuff into the instances is just
exacerbating the problem.
Data should stand on its own two feet. RNG is absolutely right in my
opinion - the data is
finite - the things you might want to do with it are infinite - don't embed
in long lived data because the data will outlive the processing model.
PIs and so on are fine for assembly of throw-away renderings but I hate to
embedded in the core data.
As for the series of processes - that is what the XPipe effort is about.
A number of other
initiatives have similar goals - flexible declarative expression of
processing to be performed
on instances *outside* of the instances themselves.
