Imagine that the field properties contains "Remember old data" checkboxes with several options;
  • With date, ident and data
  • With date and data
  • With data
Since this is a field property, Notes will create a special field behind the scenes, for example on the format;
$History<original field name>
The content in this field is controlled from the options above, but will for example contain data on the format;
<timestamp>|<user id changing the data>|<original data>
20080129T07:00|Bob Voith|This was the original data in the field
20080129T08:30|Roger Johannessen|This was the second edit in the field
This feature must of course be configurable, and by default OFF. Perhaps there should be some limitation parameters in the config too.

Are you expecting a $history field for each and every field?
Or are you hoping to flag required fields to allow Notes to build $history fields for them?
You could, of course, use 'prior version saved as responses' or even write you own using just the required fields (e.g. on Querysave, build a new doc and save every field with name ending in _h, or in a given keyword list into it and save as a response doc
I'm agnostic at the moment...
