Agreed, "root" would be a better name.

I don't remember how we came to discussing this, but let me explain my
position on this again.

If you really want "root" -let's call it like this for now- for
optimizing whatever you want to optimize (I'm still not sure what you
want it for...), then it should be an implementation detail which
isn't exposed in the API. It doesn't make any sense for it to be

Completely unrelated, I propose that we add a new property to events,
called "origin". This property would cover "where does this event come
from, ie. what other subject triggered it".

So for example if you open project.odt and there click on
searchengine.com and search for elephants which brings you to
searchengine.com/elephants and there you click on
elephants.com/the-truth-about-them that would give you the events:
 - uri: file:///home/humanoid/project.odt, origin: None
 - uri: searchengine.com, origin: file:///home/humanoid/project.odt
 ... some other events because in the middle you talked to an IM contact ...
 - uri: searchengine.com/elephants, origin: searchengine.com
 ... some other events because you switched to another tab and looked
up photos of elements there ...
 - uri: elephants.com/the-truth-about-them, origin: searchengine.com/elephants

The case of downloads gets more complicated so let's not get into it
just right now.
