I think the term traversal implies a specific processing model too
precisely; I want to use links to write my footnotes, but have them
rendered inline. Calling this traversal is consistent but confusing.
Similarly for drawing a map based on a set of links (where we might not
even have to fetch the documents).

I think the linking markup should talk about processing, and the link
processing spec needs to define a variety of kinds of traversal.
