I forgot, there is this:


Note that "atoms" are binary compatible with events, they are
essentially events with the timestamp lopped off, and the same types can
be used for both.

However, I am really frustrated by the extremely stupid use of uint16_t
for event types, which causes a ton of wide-reaching URI-map relates
hassles, so I almost want to throw away this compatibility with atoms
and eventually deprecate the event extension altogether...

So, I am not sure what to suggest.  I am using atom:Bang for such
things, for now, anyway.
