Genetic stuff is not contradicting a @date on add and dell, but it will 
offer yet another way to deal with dating or grouping 
documentary/revisional phenomena, with the results of offering too many 
options (therefore confusing) to the users. Mind you that the genetic 
offers also a (revised) @seq attribute, and a pseudo-timeline mechanism 
as well.

It is not sure that the genetic proposal is the best option, but I would 
not implement something we might regret in the moment we look into it, 
unless the council, as I said in my previous email, thinks we should act 
as we did not know that the genetic module is in preparations.
