To study runtimes and interactions, one automatically has to treat the CA in question as an object that evolves over time. So one has to follow a "path" through the CA, i feel, and in an infinitely run CA there are infinite paths, so your choice of "paths" is arbitrary, as well as choise of path interactions. Not that i find this to be a drawback, it could be very informative...
This is related to your other post on the Integers, i suppose. one can study relationships between successive numbers, or just the odds, or evens, or every third, fourth, fifth,,,I guess "path" relationships between the integers could be viewed as arbitrary too. Still not a drawback.
