mmm... sorry for the tone, guess it was a long week... just that in my former 
life I used to be the "user experience adviser" for the IT department of a 
fairly good-sized corporation I often went round and round over things like 
this with the developers, things that most of "us usability types" consider 
basic maxims.  Probably why I now work on the database side; everyone 
*thinks* they can do design, but people rarely look at a website and think 
"they should have used 3 tables and a view to handle that data" :-)
