Well, the obvious example is if I want to annotate the second page of 
a PDF version of a document as it was on january first. The obvious 
way to do this would be to use a State to retrieve a document dated 
Jan 1, refined by the request of getting a PDF over, say, HTML, and 
the refined by a *Selector* (a FragmentSelector) for the 2nd page 
using the PDF media fragment.
