"Moves" in Workshare seem to be based solely on text similarities. My use case
is legal documents. Those tend to use similar wording in multiple places, which
leads to false positives (something being shown as a "move" that's really just
a common phrase added in one place and deleted from another). Another
limitation to their implementation is that text cannot be both moved and
edited, so compare results show some part of the text moved and other parts
edited. It's generally messy enough not to be useful to me.
