Removing 'candidate' tag as this doesn't seem to have many examples of usage

@adamsilver cool, can you share more about your users' needs? Have you done any research around it?

There is a need to let our users edit and annotate documents (PDF, Word) online (think DropBox Paper or Google Docs) in the browser. So there may be a need off the back of that the lets users see how things have changed over time and by who. A version history.

However, in the interim (you know how long these can last :) ) users will be able to view the document online, but not necessarily be able to edit it. So we're going to let them download a version, make edits offline and then upload it again.

Will add to this when I find out more from research.

Each GOV.UK Register has a page where it lists when a value has changed. For example, here are all the changes to the country register.
