      Description

      From the mailing list:

      From the docs one would get the impression that the json avro schema is stored along with each value (cfr. the managing data page: "field value contains an the JSON representation of an Avro schema"), but from closer inspection I get that it only stores an id or hash of the schema, and schema's are retrieved from a meta table based on this id. It might be good to clarify this in the docs.
