I don't know if this fits into the scheme that you all are heading
towards, but i have to say - hierarchies are good for views into data,
but not for the underlying data organization.  True hierarchical data
structures are too limited - you can't have stuff situated in multiple
places.  I'd expect it better to go with something like sets of keywords
for identifying where an item belongs in the hierarchy, and use a preset
hierarchy to organize the presentation.
