+This specification is rapidly evolving and should only be used for
+developers on the project.
+# TO DO items
+The list of things that we plan to change:
+* Create a decimal representation with fixed scale using rle.
+* Create a better float/double encoding that splits mantissa and
+* Create a dictionary encoding for float, double, and decimal.
+* Create RLEv3:
+ * 64 and 128 bit variants
+ * Zero suppression
+ * Evaluate the rle subformats
+* Group stripe data into stripelets to enable Async IO for reads.
+* Reorder stripe data into (stripe metadata, index, dictionary, data)
+* Stop sorting dictionaries and record the sort order separately in the
+* Remove use of RLEv1 and RLEv2.
+* Remove non-utf8 bloom filter.
+* Use numeric value for decimal bloom filter.

We may also use numeric value for decimal column statistics
