What I really want to achieve is to divide to things:
1. How OM stores the data and how the data is accessed by ELs
2. How data is accessed by user with help of particular EL.

I really believe that this separation is really crucial and will keep things clean and focused
on their role.

If you have any good idea for EL be my guest :-)
For now I try to focus on the separation itself and establishing boundaries of responsibility
and function of both OM and EL.
