An edition must be critical, must have critical components - a pure facsimile is not an edition, a digital library is not an edition (Patrick Sahle).
A digital edition can not be converted to a printed edition without substantial loss of content or functionality - vice versa: a retrodigitized printed edition is not a Scholarly Digital Edition (but it may evolve into a Scholarly Digital Edition through new content or functionalities) (Patrick Sahle).
