Properties with Multiple values and corresponding navigation views

Meridian already offers the possibility to define a property that accepts multiple values.

However, it is just a text field with values separated by commas and it is limited to 255 characters.

It would be useful to enhance this feature and:

- Allow strings longer than 255c

- Having the ability to define navigation views in Power and Explorer clients based on multiple values properties (exactly like Outlook does with categories). In this view, a document can occur multiple times. Remember: It was possible in the past with AutoManager Workflow.

In the real word, we have many customers working with documents related to multiple disciplines or locations. Of course, We can explain that they should separate the information in several documents, but it is not always possible.

I am sure that this kind of properties that accept multiple values and the corresponding navigation views can really help the adoption of Meridian and make the initial document migration easier.
