    I feel like the System 36/38/AS400 has had this for about as long as I've been alive (if we include the skunkworks time developing S/36)...Not every database is a wonderfully elegant overengineered with perfect integrity masterpiece.

    Third party options in my past have been far less than performant, often requiring scanning a full backup and the scanning it again to retrieve the table. Is this really something that needs to be left to partners or can it be considered somewhat core functionality? In the real world, "restore full database" is not the base unit of restore. Thanks!

    This would still be very useful! We can use extended properties to create standard descriptions for fields that can be leveraged across multiple tools. Thanks!

    This can aid in situations where SQL Server extended properties have been used to provide similar exposure to metadata.

    Is there any update on this? It feels like this is more of a requirement than a "nice to have" for something intended for enterprise data management. Keep up the good work!
