Before digesting the main piece, how about some feedback
on the general strategy?

I was impressed by the possiblity of combining topic maps
with groves, to add a topification-layer without disturbing
the underlying document.

Hmmm. On the other hand, that does have a major problem when
the underlying document is updated, doesn't it?

But embedding <meta> elements in the document seems like a
pretty awful solution, too.

Drat. Anyone have any strategies for topicfication that don't
suck wind??
