It's a good idea to change this naming schema.
I like the first alternative "a path", really simple, and easy to draw,
I don't understand how you can have a JSON object with RRD/Filesystem,
will you go on a only nosql storage ?
If you use a path, types.db can be limited to derive/counter, the labels
can be in the path himself or in the filename, like this we will not
have to deploy it on all nodes when we need a new "type"
Today I have to hack it for GenericJMX, Curl, some python code ...
I'm using this
* plugin category (custom optional)
* plugin instance (optional)
* type category (custom optional)
* type instance (optional)
PluginCategory is used to separate
TypeCategory is used to separate some customplugins
