It wouldn't be hard, but it's still an extra field that would have to be set to *something* for every single decoration that anyone places. Even if it's nullable, you still have to store the null. Placed decorations are almost certainly the *most* numerous data record in the game, ahead even of the data records for player outfits (up to 16 per character!), even if only one percent of players place them.

That means a *lot* of storage for the persistent state.
Something you find difficult is a lesson on how to play better, not a punishment for playing badly.
