Getting these informations at runtime is definitely a _powerful_
_feature_, it's no more than
 .Net's attributes or java's annotations.
Their generation could be activated by a compiler switch like the RTTI
{$M+} and {$M-} so in debug mode it will be activated for the LCL code
and deactivated in release mode. For
example the following compiler directives could be put at the begining
of the LCL units.
So you pay for what you use, and don't have to pay and don't pay for
what you don't use.


By the way why not adopt the Delphi attributes's syntax instead of
creating a new one with
incompatibilties ?

Personaly I could use it in the WST to declare entities's
serialization style (attribute
properties, embedded array, external elements names ...), SOAP
operation encoding (
litteral or encodded ), SOAPAction ....
