Comment from Tim Mooney:

I can't tell from context exactly what problem is being discussed, but it seems like you could take an exploratory stab, at some of what you'd like to do, using info nodes.

I'm imagining you would modify a record's init_record() routine to parse the record's info node(s), looking for a specially named or defined node to indicate a field that needs a lazy load, and the data that should be loaded. This would allow you to make at least some progress without waiting for any (other) changes in base.
