Stuart,
I concur that nested lists are generally unwieldy as currently implementable
(is that a word?) unless you are lucky enough to be able to scan them by eye
on a single page: not the case for everyone of course.
One of the added problems of drop-down or collapsible lists is that until
you have expanded everything, you do not have a feel for the entire picture,
so guessing the right place to look can be a matter of luck, especially
given the lack of understanding that many site owners have of how to label
and categorise information in the way their audience needs.
