This patch does a dozen different things at once. Can you please split the
cleanup parts, the parts where statics are removed and the actual changes in
the representation model apart so this can be reviewed?

And while at this, please fold back thes cleanups into the original
patches. There is no point to have these changes seperate.

Thanks,
