So there would now be two types of references between blocks, one to encode
data dependencies (hrefs), and one to encode "execution" dependencies
(dependsOn)?

The optional "dependsOn" block-attribute you suggest sounds like the more
natural alternative, the other being one where a special, separate block would
list all dependencies (some sort of ToC with the partial order built-in). The
second alternative probably emphasizes modulalization at the expense of
conciseness.

I agree, and your proposal sounds very reasonnable.

Jean-Jacques.
