NOTES ON XANADU PURPLE, AS IT EVOLVES
These are notes on topics which may go into later definitions of Xanadu Purple.
=== PLURALITY OF ADDRESSING AND TRANSPOSABILITY
There needs to be a single addressing string for all xanadocs and content, which is transposable.
If it were something like
it could be transposed to any prefix, as with
and it could be referred to by the general
=== FORMAT FOR FULFILE
Somehow needs to be
EDL, with each listed span OPTIONALLY contained
ODL, with each link OPTIONALLY contained
The question is how to do this.
I'm open to JSON if that works.
=== REDACTED HYPERTIME
The hypertime server allows access to every small change. We may later want to make hypertime stepping available through SELECTED microversions.
This is similar to the issue of redacted permascrolls.
How to do this in the hypertime server is not clear.
However, the hypertime server would have to be on the publication server machine.
Unlike the redacted permascroll, which is a passive object anyone may access in its entirety, this might have to be a mechanism on the server, with associated security problems.
Redacted sourcedocs may have a special benefit where it comes to "fair use"-- presenting a redacted copy of the full-length document with only the quoted parts showing, so that position in the document is visible.
This would show the size of the original, and indicate in the origial the quote came from.
