Hola, Björn.

Where would you put the navigation, given the limitations of HTML and
currently-deployed UAs?  (I love the <link> element, but only Lynx, Moz,
and iCab AFAIK grok it.)

I instinctively agree that, en principe, navigation is meta-data and
should be segregated from the data proper... I just know how you
implement that.
