Flags are everywhere. These boolean fields are so common that I cannot imagine a mature application that wouldn’t use them in multiple models – from the ubiquitous “admin” column on a User model to the “cancelled” flag on a Reservation model to various temporary flags that determine who should have access to some new features being tested. I’ve worked with apps that had very extensive models with many columns, out of which even 6 or 7 of were just booleans of various kinds.
