I vote to stay with the current implementation because:
1) Bean is probably right about 2.0, but it's out of scope for now -
there is a long way to go before we'll need to worry about it
2) For now, we should focus on the functional flows.
Performance issues, should such issues indeed exists, can be dealt with later. And,
3) The current code base is running in production for more than 3 years now.
I am not so eager to dump a robust, well debugged code unless it absolutely necessary.

Thanks,
Avri
