Oh you are in for a world of hurt going down this particular rabbit hole.

Most/some lookup tables have a consequence in your code - how do you associate a new status with an action.

A generic lookup table simplifies the maintenance until you find a lookup that does not fit your structure (this always happens 2/3 through the project). I now have a table for each lookup type, I decide which ones can be edited. The delete procedure has to deal with FK and usage issues.

I recently got called a dinosaur by an out source architect for insisting on this structure, they then went down the generic path. I got a laugh when they ended up with a 3 table generic structure that was so complex the developers got lost trying to maintain it. F***ing whipper snappers.
Never underestimate the power of human stupidity
