If a metadata such as a keyword "bad customer" is linked to a number of objects, why would that link be visible to a specifik object once it is transferd?

In any case, a thought: In this internet age I don't see why you would be sending copies around. Why not publish ALL data and controll access rights to instead. "Sending" data to a friend would consist of selecting wich parts of the data to give him access to and then provide him with a link to it.

It would be like have local user accounts for the whole world on your machine.
