Actually, this is how I done it for first time. However,
shortly after that I've seen some maintainers opposing use
of platform data at runtime.
This is why I've moved it to private data.

On the other hand I don't like duplicating same fields in private
and platform data. Thus, I actually like reworked version
a bit more.

Thanks!
