1. Yes. This issue will be further explored in the context of
distributed versioning, even though it occurs on centralized versioning
2. These links all are defined in the specification, though I think
predecessor got dropped on the editing floor. The NextVersion gives the
successor relationship and TreeHandle provides the versioning tree
3. That is authentication and is orthogonal to this specification.
