I think we need to somehow formalise what the various link types are 
supposed to do when "actioned". Otherwise, how can two implementations
be compared are adjudicated correct or incorrect? I think a lot of 
dense prose explaining what they should do might be obviated by an
implementation neutral expression of the dynamic semantics in something like
Scheme (using groves presumably).
