Chain syncing spec


Hi all,

Hope everyone had great holidays and is enjoying the new year so far. I wrote up a first description of the chain syncing algos we may use and I'd love reviews and feedback:


I have mixed feelings about the full node mode. While archival is desirable for later checks (included from new nodes), we would get stronger privacy guarantees if cut-through still happened on full nodes. I think the "right to be forgotten" is an important part of the design. Any strong opinion either way?
