Supposed to be a link to Sal Mangano's Cookbook. Recipe 8.2 How else
are you supposed to convert elements to attributes?

Regarding risk - I'll repeat what I said at the time.

<quote.
It's a trade-off and when considering which evil you elect for you do
a little risk analysis.

What is the likelihood of events that would lead to an exception
occurring, how calamitous would it be if it did occur, how hard and
costly and time consuming is it to implement and roll out the fix.

Also if you are  am not doing big object oriented software engineering
 you don't have to live by that  bible.</quote>
