Well, I guess that depends on what you understand as "natural". For example,
for me the "natural" way is adding attributes. However, I must recognize
that my point of view could be biased because this can be far more
advantageous in the context of large hierarchies of objects where you should
specify the complete path to go somewhere. This is typical on software to
treat XML documents or any kind of hierarchical data organization system.
For a relatively plain structure like RecArray I can understand that this
can be regarded as unnecessary. But nevertheless, its adoption continue to
sound appealling to me.

Anyway, I'd be happy with any decision (regarding field attribute adoption)
that would be made.

Not at all. Discussing is a good (the best?) way to learn more :)
