comment Is it better to define object properties or layer properties?
No, this is helpful. However, it sounds like what you call 'layers' we might call 'models', and what you call 'symbolizers' we might call 'views', or even 'layers'. It's confusing, I'm confused often. But in actually writing something like ARCVIEW perhaps I should simply use the Features to contain data/fields, and use the Layers to 'symbolize' that data. It's just hard to keep the two from blending when I need to define objects for my map ahead of time. (I can't be building new objects each rendering cycle)

@L_Holcombe A good point. I am currently in the process of making MAJOR changes, because the previous organization (which consisted of both types of behavior) quickly became unorganized and unpredictable. I was hoping there was some GIS principles I could translate into a programmatic model...
