I'm finding one of the advantages to adding post or user information to WordPress is the use of meta tables. This means I never modify a core table. Instead, a meta key/value pair is added to an existing meta table.

For example, if an add-on requires parent ID for a XenForo post then currently I'd need to add to the core table or create my own table. Instead, if there was a post_meta table then it would allow me to add any additional information about the post that I'd want to code in an add-on without worrying about the core tables.

Suggesting
post_meta
thread_meta
page_meta
user_meta
report_meta

They would be empty on installation and look similar in structure to this.

Just a thought for XenForo 2.0.
