David added the following to the issue:


I go back to LID again on this.

With a LID - you can subversion on that - so for example 

original LID for content and children:  REG-123456

then if something is versioned LID on that - REG-12345.01  etc

Therefore I can always query on the stub REG-123456*  to retrieve all current members and sub-members.

This seems the best way to go - because then you can prune, delete, copy, move etc as needed.

And this is 100% backward compatible because no RIM changes.


I am not sure I understand. A parent and its children are all separate 
RegistryObjects with their own unique lids so the lid cannot be shared 
on them. And since a child has a reference to its parent version, when a 
parent is versioned one cannot retain the existing children in the new 
version unless children are versioned as well (to reference new version 
of parent). The problem is caused by child to parent linkage being part 
of the child as opposed to external to the child (as is the case with an
