public interface Modifiable

Represents an entity which can be modified. A Modifiable records it's state when it's created. As long as the Modifiable remains in this state then invocations of isModified() should return false. If this state changes in a way which makes this Modifiable "dirty" then subsequent calls to isModified() should return true.

It is up to the implementor of the Modifiable to determine the contract between the Modifiable and the entities interested in it's modified status. This could include interested entities taking action on the Modifiable once it has become modified which result in it's modified status being reset. Another possibility is for a Modifiable to be discarded once it has been modified.
