Let me add to the list of 'properties' for each database.

- Shadow DB file name(s) (would allow for shadows to be easily 'broken'
from the master DB)

I'm sure that My next two items will prompt some discussion
- Authentication Name plug-in for DB
- Encryption Name Plug-in for DB

As usual, Jim has offered some well considered arguments.

I agree that metadata could/should reside in a database but more for the

sheer practicality of it than for following a principle. If you are
facile with using SQL to manipulate the database data then why not use
to manipulate the meta data as well?

As to the meta-meta-data of the database file mapping, I'm not so sure.

I don't think we are talking about just a simple list, unless you mean a

separate file for each database. How about:

<?XML version="1.0" standalone="no"?>
<ISCNS:FileMap xmtns:ISCNS=''>
