Yes, I meant at the time of creation, i.e. when someone has to create
and pass an o_a_e and maybe only knows a mode, and thus would have to
set the path to NULL or "".

Sure. But why does object_context have a mode member at all? Maybe it is
not alway used together with another struct which has the mode already,
then that's a reason.
