These are all things I've spent more of my life on than I care to  
remember.... been working on versioned XML stores since before there  
was XML :) I also build a system somewhat similar to Wave back in the  
late 80's, but it used s-expressions instead of XML, but the UI and  
state of the application were represented using s-expressions, so you  
could modify the UI as well. It also had a history/playback mechanism.

Also relevant are overlapping markup (Range Algebra, LMNL), annotation  
persistence in structured documents, etc. etc.
