But that seems pretty obvious, and obviously not what I was talking about. A document is always a copy, of some patterns of ones and zeros on a hard drive somewhere else. It is identified by its URL, and that _can_ be in two different iframes at the same time, each with its own "rendering" of the document at different widths and scrolled (by the user, for instance) to different positions.

One question is whether modifying one of the two copies causes the other 
one to be modified.  If so, then a URI is not sufficient to identify copies.
