[Bf-committers] Fully qualified names for channels in actions?

I just stumbled upon a simple task. I have two objects (a sphere and a 
cube for example) and i wanted to control their locations with _one_ 
action. That simply isn't possible with one action alone, since both 
objects will share the location-channel (sitting on top of each other). 
Is there a way to store the location of two objects in one action or 
will i have to combine both actions with the NLA or the need to parent 
both to the bones of an armature?

If it isn't possible, wouldn't it not make sense to (optionally) use 
something like fully qualified names in a way, that both locations could 
be stored inside the same action? I may be wrong, but i would find it 
useful for this properties.
