Hi Bert,
I'm going through the minutes from the Sophia F2F,
and seeing your comments about a pull model and
labelling flows. I remember them being very important
and interesting, but the minutes aren't very clear!

I was wondering if you could explain more what you
had in mind? :)

(Btw, this was my interpretation:

>   <fantasai> Note to self: elt { flow-name: foo;
>              elt2 { content: extract-flow(foo) | copy-flow(foo) | continue-flow(foo); }

elt is the source of the content. It is labelled with 'flow-name'.

elt2 wants to use elt as its contents. It has a few options:

   extract-flow(foo) does what flow-from does today: it steals
   the content from elt, leaving it empty

   copy-flow(foo) does what dauwhe was proposing through flow-policy:
   it copies the content from elt, without affecting elt

   continue-flow(foo) extracts only overflowing content from elt (or
   whoever stole its contents).

Don't remember what I was thinking wrt multiple source elements...)
