Re: Archiving II

retrievable/believeable copy - make a copy that the backend
	knows how to get ahold of.

Maybe "knows how to get ahold of" is too strong in some cases?  If
it got saved on tape, the backend can't be sure it can find it
again.  Maybe you just want to say "has a name for" or "knows how
to ask for?"

	When a user adds sponsorship to a document, if funds are
	available in the pool sponsorship pool he's using, they
	come from there.  Otherwise, all previous bids get reduced
	(their escalator moves back) and the funds get reassigned
	to the newly (re) sponsored document.

This is presumably implemented with the standard xanadu region
transformation stuff?  You don't want to run around adjusting a
lot of escalators when you can just add a multiplier between
them and the pool to reduce their share.  (I assume you thought
of this already.)
