The idea of an external map of the timeline is interesting.  It address 
the need we see in our solutions.  Important use cases are "get 
current", and threading versions "get previous".  An ordered BPC of 
versions might work.

We find this comes up very often so a recommended design on top of core 
mechanisms would assist adoption of LDP.
