Alright, we all love pages, well, mostly.
I have clients that use pages heavily, almost ungodly so, and they are always like "we want to use pages to do this really really complicated thing". they love the custom building of the form, that is like the biggest thing they love about it, but they are always wanting a little more than pages can offer. so on some of their complex things, they have to either have me make hooks for them or actually build an app.
so here are my glorious suggestions for pages:
Now, i know yall are probably thinking, why you complaining, just make a hooks and templates like you normally do or that this would some how overly complicated pages. there are a few problems with making hooks. the first one, i loose all portability. those mentioned classes are all created with the database ID. so for articles, it would be Records1, for the next db you create it would be Records2, and so on. so the hooks i create, would either be useless or at worst, be acting on the wrong database for you. second is, lack of self containment. install database, then have to go install hooks on each update, have to do that. i know it doesn't sound like a big deal, but in my experience, the less steps involved higher chance of success and less support.
this would turn an already pretty powerful app, into an extremely powerful app. i mean i always joke, i could probably duplicate almost every IPS app in pages, with this system, I'd prolly could.
