Static objects are ones which, unless they are transformed, are unchanged as bit sequences. These we will refer to as Static Digital Objects. On the other hand we can think about database files which naturally change over time as entries are changed. Alternatively we can consider a whole collection of files as the data object. Such a collection might change as additional files are added to the collection over time. Such digital objects we will refer to as Dynamic Digital Objects. Of course at any particular time the Dynamic Digital Object is a particular Static Digital Object which we may preserve.

For example we might try to mandate all images to be JPEG, all documents to be PDF/A, and all science data to be kept as XML files, or demand that a specific ontology be adopted. Even if we were to be successful for a limited time, the one thing we can be sure of is that things would change and the mandates would fail Given the constantly changing world we need a system which does not force a specific way of doing things but instead we should be able to allow anything to be accommodated. For example we cannot mandate a particular way of producing representation information or provenance.
