Oh, in that case, "yes". :-) If there's a need to cut something,
origin parents would be a viable candidate.

I was thinking that this file could document the final goal so that if
anyone else wanted to contribute to the implementation, we would be
heading in the same direction. It seems reasonable that an early
implementation may omit origin parents. Since the actual
implementation will lag behind the spec, I'll add a status section to
the top of the document where we can describe the delta between plan
and implementation.

Also, I'm now convinced we're talking about the same thing. :-)
