It makes sense to me. The physical analogy would be the bound sets of articles
in our library?
How can book and article be top level, when set wraps book?
We do talk about a set of books, why not a set of articles in the same way?

If the rendering is too significant a problem I would agree such a minority use
would not be worth it. In which case I'd say no.

Just my 2c
