Help message Broadcasting system

What about combining the custom property idea with the db idea. Eventually
the data for my application will be in a remote mySQL and I would like to be
able to update help information and have it get changed on the client end as
its updated in the db.

I need non-tech folks that work for our company who know the purposes of the
items in this software to be able to enter help info into the db and it be
spit out.

So maybe a have a handler that watches for the custom message property to
determine what control it is and the hanlder gets info from the db to put
into the help.

Is this going to put too much stress on my db?
