It's possible even without adding a tree-root ID, though the biggest win happens when you do.

Adding a changeset version identifier seems a good idea too, since
people may have changesets stored in other places than archives
(mailboxes, working directories, etc.).

Care to add this on the wiki?
Or in whatever place we can keep this kind of suggestion until the taboo
on bumping the archive version is raised.

This isn't an incompatible change. Older versions of tla will ignore these additional inventory ids. Newer versions of tla would be able to cope with the lack of this info. So it's not clear to me that we need to wait until the next archive format.

When we do change the archive format, I'd be inclined to go with Andrew Suffield's proposal for changesets.

Making the file structure similar to the conceptual structure should make it easier to do things the right way, and harder to do things the wrong way.

But then, is that really necessary for me to say it? 99% of the time one
can just append "ddaa agrees" to any of your posts and be correct.

There was absolute silence when I proposed this. It's nice to get some feedback.
