One of the things that is missing in this list, is to have dictionary
entries have a (key, type, value) format. This makes it possible to have
all the values XDR encoded/decoded correctly. When new values get
transported over the network, we can force the need for XDR encoding
functions for these types.

I thought there was a GitHub issue for this already (or maybe a bug?),
but I fail to find it.
