    The scenarios I have in mind here are FAQ-style summaries of email
    archives. Take the unrev list as an example. You've asked for a
    scenario, and this (recursive) example is one. This exchange
    could be summarized by adding the scenario to the use-case "document".

    The new version (use case + example scenario) then replaces the
    original version (which had the use case only). The original exchange
    is still accessible via links, but no longer appears as an integral
    part of the "document".
