That was indeed duly noted (although again, Digitial Publishing WAI ARIA
Module claims itself that it is part of the WAI-ARIA family of
specifications in its abstract). But multiple hierarchies wouldn't help
give the kind of default organization that a single hierarchy does.

There is (and will still be) a mechanism to tag specs that can be used
to filter the list.

The question here was what could help give greater clarity on the
default view of the TR page - the real comparison is not between the
ideal classification of our technical reports (if one exists) and this
one, but between this classification and the current complete lack of
classification.

Once the first phase of the TR re-design closes, we can certainly
entertain a different default way of presenting our TRs if we find one
that is better.

And if we find this family classification worse than no-classification
at all, we can give that feedback to Studio24 to use the current
un-grouped list for the TR page - that's one that will be built in any
case since (as the presentation indicates) it will serve as a basis to
filtered views.
