Proposal

For achieving similar things, we might follow the same path.

Considerations

We are still reflecting how to find out about the canonical representative upstream document US2017202261 :link: or the corresponding WIPO document WO2017127416A1 :link: in this context?

Well, sure both documents are family members of EP3405048A1, but we are still thinking about how specific heuristic rules should exactly be implemented to drill up to the respective upstream document by navigating the network of referenced documents appropriately.

We always have been looking into finding a solid way to pull in bibliographic and fulltext information (also drawings, anyone?) from other documents as a general fallback when the document in question lacks certain bits of information which would well be available from another family member to fill the gaps.
