I think you conflated two ideas here. I was talking about taking the 
existing structure, but adding a section to Subject, Action, and 
Environment that lets you dump _XML_ data. I don't like this idea. I 
was not talking about changing the complete context representation.

They're not needed, but I think they're very useful in practice. "Ease 
of management" should not be taken lightly :)
