Series v Evolution - just to give some support to this, library data recognizes series as:

"Serial: Bibliographic item issued in successive parts bearing numerical or chronological designations and intended to be continued indefinitely. Includes periodicals; newspapers; annuals (reports, yearbooks, etc.); the journals, memoirs, proceedings, transactions, etc., of societies; and numbered monographic series, etc. "

Basically, issued serially over time; a succession of parts or entries or files.

"Integrating resource [kc: terrible name, but like Makx's "evolution"]: Bibliographic resource that is added to or changed by means of updates that do not remain discrete and are integrated into the whole. Examples include updating loose-leafs and updating Web sites. Integrating resources may be finite or continuing."

I think "serial" and "updated" / "integrated" are pretty common patterns. The difficulty is in giving them clear names and definitions. And of course there will be some materials that are a bit of both, and I have no idea how to handle those in a user-friendly way.
