Yes, but it expect access control pre-column and for per composite type
attribute. I understand PRIVATE as some internal data for methods
and it needn't a speciffic access control, because control must be
define for methods, and other way access PRIVATE data is not possible.
IMHO it's better.
The other important thing is possibility create table from type:

Hmm, p.pay.tax() ?
