Yeah, but then two-way hypermedia Webs never worked before anyway. That's
why it took so long: but W3 was willing to let go of the benefits, and
concentrate on simplicity. I worked, but it did give problems such as link
rot...
The reason I suggest people to have two-way linking systems (and more
complexity, possibly) is because it can be built on top of current Web
technologies... look at XLink.

Do you have any pointers to work on two-way links with referer headers? I
know Blogspace tracks links, so that's cool. Maybe I should mention all of
this in the notes...
