Elektra's technical suitablity

As far as I can tell Elektra does not support configuration schemas.

If I am not mistaken Elektra currently treats all plain text key values as strings. I think this is a feature and not a limitation. Elektra is friendly towards existing application configuration schemes. If it enforced key types (Integers, floats, strings etc...) things get a lot more complicated and it is not clear this is the right place to enforce it.

Perhaps enforcing the input types at a configuration builder API makes more sense, keeping libelektra free of the added complexity?

Elektra from a technical stand point on its suitability as a Fedora
configuration engine?

So far the technical critiques have been based on invalid assumptions.
