Hah, a small point but well worth mentioning!
Somehow I confused descriptions and UserData. UserData is in
osg::Object, which both StateSet and Node inherit, and I assumed it was
the same for descriptions.
Well then, sorry for causing such a big discussion over nothing!

I think there was some discussion about turning UserData into a
container for various types of metadata... Or was that the description
IIRC, this was actually rather ingenious, as it allowed storing many
types of data in a type-safe way, but if there was nothing (as will be
the case most of the time) didn't take any more space than the current
UserData (one pointer).
