Why is a widgets table out of the question?
I'm not agreeing with the push to treat widgets as a type of post. They aren't data -- they're structure. In essence they're part of the theme if nothing else. A very flexible part of the theme, but still -- part of the theme.
They're not content, they're structure. Treat it as what it is.
