We Need to Use Tracebacks in Some Kinds of Programs

Trace-backs are highly useful for computational creativity programming. In order to debug and build on something created, you need to know how the system did it.
Are trace-backs useful for information programming too? You see sometimes the business rules result in the user not being allowed to do something or something simply not happening. Telling them why could be useful.

One of the problems with using .NET DataRows the way they are generally used is that you lose some of the context, i.e. you lose some of the trace-back.

EndemeFields (semantically defined data) can include tracebacks as long as the traceback can be properly applied to the field. This would usually be result fields. This is a .NET implementation detail.
