I don't think this is so bad. Other projects do it all the time, and
don't seem to have problems.

There's more to a coder's life than reading and modifying code. A
developer also has to understand how it works, and sometimes follow
its execution in a debugger. Debuggers are wonderful tools for
working with C code, but not for cpp code.

But I guess this isn't so bad, since it's only defining a data object.
(Right?)
