The WNFS root is a specialized structure that keeps the disparate segments together.

data RootNode = RootNode
{ pretty :: BareIPFS
, public :: PublicNode
, private :: McTrie
, revoked :: McTrie

Since this layer is completely controlled by WebNative, we don't need to worry about metadata elements conflicting with userland.


The pretty tree (public reduction) is represented as simply /p/ to be unobtrusive in URLs. If this becomes corrupted, it can always be deleted and reconstructed from the source of truth: the public DAG.
