Trackback to the future?

Blog posts written at different times on related themes, make the traces of knowledge construction visible, as is explained in this post by L. Efimova and another post by D. Pike found on the way to the linked-to past.

I wonder if the effect would also work in the reverse direction, i. e., if older posts contained trackbacks to newer posts within the same blog: Track”back”s to the future! This type of usage is rarely seen, though. Perhaps it is not as useful as I imagine, or it is just too cumbersome.
