In an application I developed in 1994-6, "Palimpsest" you could cut
and paste the links (I called them "cross references") and
annotations, which had rich meta data in them. You could "tag" links
and annotations with "labels", links and annotations had creators,
creation dates, etc. All this data was maintained when copying and
pasting within the app.
You can still run Palimpsest on the Mac in Classic.
