I asked a question in irc but I was unable to keep track of comments except now:

19:34 < majukati> what's the difference between spatial and content view?
19:37 < majukati> content is text, image and spans but not page image

21:29 < benja_> majukati: why not page image?!? it should be page image too
21:30 < benja_> content is what's "in" the node, spatial is what's "around" the 
21:31 < benja_> you can think of it like this: the content view renders  
                the text, image, etc. that 'represents' the item
21:31 < benja_> e.g. the name of the person (where the node is the person) etc.
21:31 < benja_> the spatial view renders a context for the node
21:32 < benja_> e.g. a calendar with other events that happened around the same 

No, the idea with spatial view was it to be spatial. But when we though 
this spatial vs. structure thing I was not thinking this problem at all.

I propose that we create ContentView or RepresentView and from that 
inherit [Text,Image,Page]ContentView/RepresentView. And for predicate 
lobs use something else than these.
