Given the amount of discussion about resolution throughout the entire
document (which I'm glad to see), it sure seems like it should be
mentioned as one of the design principles.
Perhaps something like:
Requirements for resolution change depending on context - For compile
time, resolution should favor the earliest possible version of a module.
At installation time, favoring the latest possible version is likely
appropriate, and further, persisting this configuration for later reuse
and faster load times may be an essential characteristic. For testing
scenarios the need to select a variety of combinations for compatibility
checks will require recomputing resolution with each execution, possibly
with additional constraints added.
