It might hurt, but I think the best thing is to not attach these values at
all, as there is no semantics attached to them until the core recognizes
and modifies them properly on edits (at least for most values).

The biggest problem is the format inside parasites - i personally dislike
gserialize (unused anyway), and strongly favour very simple decomposing,
i.e. scalars ("single-valued string-thingy") where possible. So the more
parasites the better ;)
