I'd started work on a db based on the current traffic manager 
requirements, and it was all getting rather complex. The changes you've 
mentioned would appear to simplify the database requirements somewhat, 
so I'd be happy to add something onto the scenery db system to support 
it. I doubt I have the time to maintain it though, so if someone wants 
to volunteer to keep an eye on things and prod me when changes to the db 
structure or front end are required then it'll make best use of the time 
I have available.
