I find Craft 3 to have a very clever database structure which eschews all of the issues I've seen with EAV.
Despite contrasting the differences between Craft 3's model and EAV, I'm having difficulty generating buy-in from the rest of my team who dismisses it as EAV. After so many times around the block, I wonder if it would help to point to a named database structure. I'm not looking for a comparison against EAV, rather a definition to provide my team.
Looked quite a bit and can't seem to pin down a name for Craft 3's database structure, is there one? If so, what?
Anecdote: one particularly snarky team member has taken to calling it "The Junk Drawer" after the content table. I sort of love it!
