You're right, ideally we'd have both mechanisms and ways of moving
between them. I'd been thinking of diff-mergining as a browser task,
but if we have an intrinsic diff representation then it can be a
server task as well (or instead). That is, the URL,1

could fetch an original document,,2

could fetch the next version (version 1 plus some diffs transparently
merged by the server), and,1,2

could fetch the next version with the diffs merged in a way that
identifies them.
