I ask because I don't think we want to in any way say that complex content
should not be posted to the Web.  

So I think we need to remove the word content (or at least not comment about
not posting complex content) 
- and talk about presenting content in complex ways 
- or complex presentations 
- or something along those lines.

Well, indeed, but the definition of 'content' (which is still missing) has
to clarify this, I guess.

Not binding (since spontaneously) I'd refer to 'content' as almost
everything which does not comply with navigation or supplementary data (like
e.g. info boxes, usually used in some kind of right margin). And in my
opinion, this also includes presentational aspects.
