My first thought when I read this:

>Interesting to have {lIn} with a single subject, as it's my understanding that {lIn} is more "share (among a group)", while {bon} is "share (one's own resources with beneficiaries)".

was that maybe bon could be use to describe a more traditional server->client setup, where a dedicated server doesn't really "share" (as in give and take) anything, but merely provide for the client.
Maybe even the way a web server "shares" its data with the clients?
