I fail to see how it makes sense to use nodes for this. Not only for the above stated reasons
but also in terms of querying. Again if this is the opinion, then there is no reason to ever
support multi valued properties to begin with.

I feel the arguments brought forth are very Java centric, which is fine since this is a Java
project. But if the target audience is to also include interpreted languages, then this Java
centric POV is going in the opposite direction.
