Here's my forpence:-
Why Have database Tables Defining which Attributes belong to a Class.
Why not Have the attribuites existing in a config section of your class.
This was my original plan, but with very few exceptions, the objects are exactly the same (bar the list of attributes associated with them).
I wanted to do : http://website.com/browse?object_id=123. I suppose I could have loaded the object type from the database, and then blessed that object into the relevant sub-class, but it's been easier to maintain everything through a single table.
Having said that, there has been the odd "if type==6" lines...
