Well... The answer that Dvandom gave is the most sensible 'broad' answer.
With regards to the Just Imagine cascade, or indeed any cascade on RACC, 
I would say that you have a lot of leeway in this.  Simply put, the nature 
of the story writing process for cascades means that the cascade is 'open'.
A cascade is expected and indeed *encouraged* to have multiple authors 
picking up on what has gone before.  Whether that 'openness' should carry 
through as far as archiving is concerned is admittedly a somewhat different 
matter.  My guess is that most RACC writers would be more comfortable 
having a collected cascade be put up in an archive than other writings 
(especially other serious writings).  So, while I may be wrong about this 
I would say: yeah, sure, go ahead and put up the whole lot for context purposes.
