Even more drastic cut-backs in METADATA
So I have been thinking some more about the issue of removing attributes
from METADATA. I think that will introduce some problems with how we can
then do .priv and .shared. My original idea was to allow ".priv" and
".shared" to be tacked on the end of an entry name to have the appropriate
value returned. This is ugly in that it then requires the somewhat
arbitrary restriction that entry names themselves cannot end in .priv or
So here is a more radical proposal: do away with .priv and .shared as well.
Instead each annotation would define whether it is per-user or shared. So
on a mailbox we would initially define:
Where "public" would be "shared" and "private" would be per-user.
