Can a publication change over time?

There seems to have been a good discussion on this at the meeting that I missed ☹.   And I didn’t see a specific resolution to the topic, so I figured I’d pull it out here for further review.

In my view, Garth said it best (copied from the minutes):
<garth> Publishing: defining the parts that won’t change over time.

This means that a WP can contain resources that are a mix of “static” (unchanging) content and “dynamic” (changing) content.  I have two favorite examples (aka real world use cases) of this:

  1.  A textbook where the quizzes can be changed by the professor for their specific class
  2.  A data dashboard that is able to display the current data

Does anyone believe differently about a WP and its ability to contain “dynamic” content?

P.S. I am specifically *NOT* talking about PWP here – just WP.
