I too have a major problem with HTML and XML heirarchical structure - it's
not the way most things work.
What we are doing is cramming arbitarily-structured information into a
predefined heirarchy. What we should be doing is assigning appropriate
structures to the information as required by (a) the intrinsic structure of
the content, (b) the relationship between the information and the
application, and ((c) the structure of the application itself. All 3 are
different and should be separable, and NONE of them are always heirarchical.
