Data Dictionary

It would be nice to have a master data dictionary where fields could be defined once and then used as needed within Entity definitions.

For example,

Account# with a type of string, could be defined in a master data dictionary table and then any Entity that needs to hold this field could select it from the Data Dictionary.

The advantage of this would be enforcement of consistent naming across entities.  Allow for easy name changes att he data dictionary level which would propgate to all entites using the field.
