In my experience you end up trading performance for flexibility with
this approach. I was faced with a similar problem managing semi
structured voter data and ending up using xml/rdf to manage the data.
There's an article on perl.com, search for massive data aggregation
using Perl and xml. I'm not saying that's the best approach, but it
ended up working well for our use.
