There are a lot of new features planned for the new schematic file

Probably introducing in the file format the possibility to use a list of
values for the component value (and other fields like the DNF flag) and put in the first release of V6 the behaviour "use the first value, keep the others saved in the file" would leave the door open to this development after the V6.0 release and without changing the file format specs, allowing to implement it without the need for further changes to the file format.

Anyway, I confess I did not see the latest specs, so probably this has been considered yet and I'm re-inventing the wheel.

P.S.: I'm quite curious about the new eeschema file specs (I've seen a version from march 2018 dev mailing list, so may be quite outdated).
