SOURCEDOCS IN XANADU PURPLE

XanaduÆ is a registered trademark of Project Xanadu. TransLitô and Xanadu Purpleô are claimed trademarks of Project Xanadu.
Previous Xanadu designs have always assumed the public availability of source documents (sourcedocs) which are not xanadocs, but we have not paid much attention to their management.
For Xanadu Purple we must now get down to business and give this some thought.
There are three types of sourcedocs--
- conventional docs
=== TYPES OF AVAILABILITY
Expected stable source, stable content
- some magazines and newspapers
Semi-stable source but unstable content
- evanescent sources
stable internal <> external
allow transposition of content to different locations
to quote from
- private documents
- copyrighted documents in fair-use amounts
