It could be enforced by using some kind of trust network, i.e. I want to share 
changes with who signs with a key k. If you wanted to share 
changes with two with different keys, then that would be a 
problem, but probably not a practical one.

I quite like the idea of being able to look at a revision of a file and be 
able to deduce where it came from. I worked on a proprietary database system 
that used a similar scheme and it worked quite well.
