Sometimes, you want to use objecttype, sometime sysfiletype.
It would be nice to have a single field with the type of the item.
Careful with that one, as it's pretty complex.
For example, in some cases we need to know that a document is a file in Dropbox. And other times we want to know that's it's a Word document. Two different things, and that is in part why two fields (@sysfiletype and @sysobjecttype) are being used.
Maybe using a multi-valued field (hey! now supported in v8!) would help, so a document could be a Dropbox item AND a Word document.
Don't worry, I know how complex it is and I do not intent to do it without lots of feedback and validation from you and several other people from R&D. That being said, Stratus is by far the best occasion we have if we which to improve that part of the software :)
I was pretty sure of that, but wanted to avoid having to handle 3 unsuitable fields instead of the present two :p
