Subject Re: Sofa-unaware AEs that create new views in an AAE
Date Thu, 17 Apr 2014 13:50:45 GMT
The fact that views are "immutable" is also valuable though. To me, the
fact that you can't rearrange views easily is similar to the fact that
you can't change the text of a document once it's set: even if it was
doable, it would make processes less observable and less robust in the end.
