I make quite some thoughts on recent months how to use Aida on the top 
of such domain models you are using. Or more general, on the top of 
relational databases. Giorgio Ferraris also had somehow similar problems 
as you have. On the other side I last used relational databases  more 
than 10 years ago. That's why I probably don't understand the problem 
well enough. But I'm sure Aida can cover RDB domains too. We just need 
to develop an appropriate pattern.

So far for now, I need to look your talk to the end first :)
