Any plans for a BAG datatype, i.e. a datatype that may contain each value several times?

Thank you for a feature request. Sorry, but relational data model is based on assumption that each value is atomic, has no sub-fileds or "arrays" of values. So, I do not think that BAG (or any other "collection" or "object" type) will be implemented in MySQL.
