[Bioc-devel] VariantAnnotation: DNAStringSets for ref/alt alleles in 'VRanges' class

Would it be reasonable to (optionally) allow storing the reference and 
alternative alleles in the 'VRanges' class as a 'DNAStringSet'? 
Currently, 'character' and 'Rle' are possible.  Having a 'DNAStringSet' 
would make it more consistent with the rest of the 'VariantAnnotation' 
framework and make use of the efficient 'Biostrings' string handling 

Best wishes
