WOW! Thank you! this got to be the best answer I had here so far. I would agree
that it might not be desirable in the HTML 5 timeframe but it would be
something to consider.

The way web content is displayed now, there is usually three levels on a page,
Site-level information, page context information and page content itself. The
streams would be a way for search engine to understand this structure better
and also adaptive technologies user to switch to the level they want.
