      i really like the places where it says "a number" and "a list", because
      these concepts can be easily mapped into pretty much any representation.
      when it says "an object", however, that's an entirely different matter.
      it would be great for the registry to really be clear about what kind of
      structures to expect for hints (single values, value lists, and maybe
      lists of key/value pairs or something along those lines), and then the
      registry would not depend on a specific language.

      cheers,

      dret.
