Right, but with charting, it's a *MAJOR* issue if you lose data. With
stored queries, you can fix your URLs.

It's possible, but I strongly question the notion that query URLs are an
appropriate way to store stuff. I think much more appropriate is a
field ID/ID table. Is there a way of having referential constraints to
different tables from the one field (ID), depending on the values of
other fields (field ID)?
