We could, but then we would need to parse it every time. Storing it in a 
structured way seems like the database solution and at least as a user 
from the client side it makes sense.

Are you worried about performance or is it the smaller change that you
want?

I can't tell how much, if any, is gained in speed by having an array of
strings instead of another system table.
