I agree -- the immutability is a good thing in general, and your other 
email in this thread brings up some deep issues.

No, we shouldn't take this lightly.

An interesting problem (maybe for Yang too? hint, hint.... ;-) is what 
happens to immutable tokens in a distributed/Grid environment:
There tokens might be just handles to remote files. So it's a good
thing that the handle is immutable. However how can we make sure that
the object being represented by the handle itself doesn't change?
