I would agree for navigation pages, but not for pages with real content. 
  For those I don't want to have to keep fetching new pages.  That's 
particularly true for FAQ pages, where I often want to skim all the 
FAQs.  Some sorts of document really need both modes: short pages for 
people wanting to answer very specific questions, and long pages for 
people wanting to understand the subject.

That's one reason why I'll often prefer PDF files (the other is that PDF 
files tend to be written by technical authors or the actual technicians 
whereas web pages tend to be written by advertising types - which is an 
inversion of what they should be best for!)

RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
