   I understand where you are coming from.  The need to remember as described
   in my example comes from the fact that the temporary resources and
   everything pertaining to them is deleted.  I am using this as a the semantic
   meaning behind the use of a temporary space for the example I posed.

I'm not quite sure what you're saying here.  Can you restate?

In particular, you have a cheap way of guaranteeing unique version
url's by tacking a uuid to the end of the implementation name of
the object in your store.  This gives you a stable name for a version.
In addition, you have human meaningful names for versions, by
combining version-controlled resource URL's with version names and
labels.  So it looks the protocol gives you both stable names for
versions and human meaningful names for versions.

Cheers,
Geoff
