Hans,

Yes, the ability to read into a data structure would be good. Much more
important to me that CF... :)
I guess fundamentally, it would work like the program described files do
today, but also allow the ability (maybe in phase 2) to read into the DS
without using the Input spec area. That is it would allow use to define our
Input data with D specs. Of course I wouldn't expect, nor would I want, you
to implement all that RPG cycle stuff from the Input specs in the D-spec
implementation.
