[Dune] How to store entities?

Dear Dune,

for some of our models, we store for each vertex all elements that share 
this vertex. We currently use a
for this. I have a couple of questions concerning this:

1. Is this currently a good choice or are there better choices?

2. When would it be safe to store (smart) pointers to 

3. What should I use in the future when EntityPointer is gone?

4. How strong do the answers to the questions above depend on the grid 
manager that is used?

5. Will EntitySeed get a method that restores the Entity rather than the 
current method that restores the EntityPointer? When?

I guess that I could draw some conclusions from the "lifetime of 
objects" discussion, but this is very hard to follow for me.

Thank you. Kind regards
