A shortcoming of MySQL is that columns are defined per table, with no central list of columns. Benefits of a central list of columns include:

  • avoiding similar name for the same data element, for example product_id and prod_id
  • consistency of data type for the same data element
  • shortcut to add an element from the central list to a table's structure

The phpMyAdmin configuration storage would be the place to maintain this central list (probably per database).
