I guess it depends on how different the view should be. In most cases  
I'd say a book should be marked up the same way whether it's through  
an author or through a publisher.

Using enclosing_resource_name, enclosing_resource_path,  
enclosing_resource, resource_path etc will handle most if not all of  
my use cases. I'm not sure I'd ever test for @user / @forum - a post  
should show the title, message, date posted, author, comments whether  
it's displayed in a forum or in the users recent posts list.
