Subject: Re: [xdi] Bill: question about cross-reference expansion

Yes if we could make a list of these basic "expansion" rules, then someone could write an application that takes an input graph and "expands" everything in it :)

Thanks Drummond. I'll post the email for my action item tonight, I think that should help. I'll also make sure +a+b is one of the expansion examples in the email.

Kind regards,

Subject: [xdi] Bill: question about cross-reference expansion

Bill, I was thinking about how this would work to "fully expand" all XDI addresses into "$ statements", i.e., into XDI statements consisting of all $words (plus the four GCS symbols and literals).

It's a cool idea, and for a one-segment statement like +a, it's easy.




It is also easy for (+a).





But I got stuck trying to expand the statement +a+b.






At this point I don't know how to get rid of the parentheses and still make it a valid XDI statement.
