copies of vr; 1 for public to trample, 1 for your files, ...

When you have a vr scene that you have stuff in that you may want later,
cannot you release a copy for the public (or subset thereof) to play with,
and retain a pristine copy for your own reference? If you are intending
to communicate with someone or a group, you would expect everyone to be
continually messing up your pretty arrangement (moving the chairs, scaring
off the elephants, whatever), but you might have a scene that others can
use but which you might like to return to the way you like it ( the cats
put outside, the books primly arranged according to your preference, ...).
In that case, you should be able to return the scene to the way you like it.

I should think there could be a way to have this cake and eat it too,
although I could be wrong.
