Simply, how might one handle checking (to process) addressing (
Handling specific Object IDs or Public addressing is, obviously, easy but what about collections?
If the types of collections were limited (say to only followers and following), I could see an easy way to verify quickly but, as far as I understand the spec., any collection technically qualifies for what can be put in the addressing attributes.
And you can’t (easily) just grab the collection to check if any of your users reside in said collection since that collection could be paginated.
And large collections mean, potentially, churning through a ton of pages just to check if you see any of your users.
And there’s no provided way to request the remote instance to see if some user is a part of one of the instance’s collections so the searching, I would thing, ultimately resides with you.
So…how can you know whether an Object is addressed to any of your users with the expectation that said addressing could contain any collection, whatsoever?
I feel like I’m missing something obvious but I can’t seem to reason my way out of this conundrum.
Thanks for any help!
