That's fine, but I think we need to be very careful to keep these 
different issues in view. While you engineers may be thinking of the 
presentation of linked lists, the whole reason why users wish to do 
this is because they want to describe common semantics. So this is not 
totally unconnected. Likewise with previous discussions of 
accessibility and captions.
