I think there's a lot of scenario where this would fail, like for
example instances being resized; the flavor is a metadata.

Though, changing the schema to improve performance is a good one, this
needs to be thought from the sample sending to the storage, through the
whole chain. This is something that will break a lot of current
assumption; that doesn't mean it's bad or we can't do it, just that we
need to think it through. :)
