"Snapshot" has other implications that I'm uncomfortable with.  My hope is that 
when we've better common understanding of the scope, either we won't actually 
need a special term, or an appropriate term will suggest itself.

Example:  I'm not sure I'd regard a brand mark on a cow as a "snapshot", but I'd 
expect it to be invariant for the life of the animal - in that sense an "IVPT".

(Actually I was thinking of a real project proposal involving zebra stripes for 
my example, but that would take too much explanation.)
