Currently, every account has a number of default containers. The access to these containers is maintained in the
Nice for efficiency, and maybe makes creating new account cheaper?
Possible downside is more containers created than needed such as Pictures, Images, Photos, Drawings (as per app developer preference) rather than the developer seeing that Pictures always exists and deciding to use that rather than create their own.
Another possible issue is localisation. I'm not sure if it's colonial to 'suggest' English names by having them created by default (as now) or have apps developed in Russia, China, Vietnam and of course France
Maybe this is something that RDF can help with? For ex, by having a semantic label which helps an app identify the purpose of a container regardless of the name. But if they are created by apps on first access that's unlikely to happen unless the API has some way to nudge in that direction. I'm not sure it would be picked up anyway, just a thought.
Yes @theWebalyst. Account creation is now cheaper.
RDF will definitely help with this. Once we introduce RDF, there are endless possibilities and I for one am super excited about it!
