I suggest it would be anti-social to take this bit
of user interface that everybody knows and radically
change the semantics of it. Right now, everybody knows
its harmless to follow a link, just like it's harmless
to turn the pages of a book. It would be antisocial
if, by turning to page 100, I deleted my bank account
or some such.
