I agree that a data area unique to the job (without the usual create and
cleanup) can be a handy thing.
If your use is for a tool that could be within a user's job, that may be a
problem in that they could be using the data area...
Given that much of the corporate world is a mixed bag of new and old code,
in a OS that is rare to drop support of something,
All things are possible, but if the job is your job - why not? ..imho.
