In general terms - and from a search engine perspective -  there are plenty
of ways in which this sort of information (sequencing/hierarchy,
prerequisites and outcomes etc.) could be used in search functionality that
improved course discovery. While I applaud efforts to keep to a focussed
core and not sprawl off into describing all education-related data, the
discovery-vs-delivery line is a hard one to draw.
