I basically agree, although I think that if using the paralell tree approach
links across different trees are necessary, not just desirable.

  Hi,

  There seems to be two basic strategies for accessing different versions
  of a web page.  One strategey has a way to track a user's preference by
  using cookies or including session information in the URL.  The other
  strategy is to provide parallel tree structures.  I think that both are
  reasonable depending of the development resources possible.  For some
  places where the availability of programmers to hadle cookies or
  rewriting URL's is very limited, the parallel tree approach might be
  reasonable.  It can also be useful for users who refuse cookies.  For
  other sites where there is more programming resources available, using
  cookies or rewriting URL's might be fine.

  If the parallel tree approach is used, peoviding links to versions od
  the page in other trees would be desirable.
