Re: nature of the link?

Indeed, we don't know if Changelings even engage in sexual procreation, or indeed in procreation of any sort... Odo and the Hundred have been characterized as "children" or "infants" on occasion, but not really as "offspring". Perhaps they are more analogous to jobs than kids: the Link engages in a job here, another there, devoting a few liters of goo for the purpose, and those liters grow to meet the demands of the job but are later reabsorbed. Linking after a hard day's work may feel like sex, but without the functionality...
