View as plain text  
Is there a better way to support this? Db servers I care about have
suffered greatly from such support for schema-less apps. A row per
attribute using the columns (attribute name, attribute value) might be
good when these attributes are to be indexed. Otherwise, this can be a
huge drain on performance.
