navibar looks good.

I'm wondering if it is possible to support non-tree website structure 
(like the page 
which is a subcategory both of  

I would in deed like to see standardized ontology for describing the 
structure of web-content, in regards to your current format I agree with 
Jeremy that it would be nice to have the resources being instances of 
something more specific than rdfs:Resource, furthermore I don't see the 
need to use urns and to have the http-url as a plain literal (why not 
allow to say more about the dereferenceable resources?)
