I very strongly disagree. Cf the other thread with Radim 's comment on topology error.
And think about *future* evolutions. The enum would make that much safer. In the bin enum world you would have to introduce a new YetAnotherKeyValueFilter interface :)

>> I don’t understand, the code still has to look all key/value pairs of a given node (at least the primary ones) and send them through the KVF / Converter logic. So you need to unmarshal all of them as well as load from cachestore the passivated ones. Correct? That’s the cost I am describing here.

Ok. How do we go about this ? JIRA ? Different email thread?
