good idea, but I see a problem with this: As far as I understood Karsten 
they're mapping it to PHP objects, and their names aren't case 

TEXT ->lowercase-> text
someConfigurationValue ->lowercase-> somconfigurationvalue

can't call

new Text()

as you can't guess which letters to transform back to uppercase...
