Perhaps not. I mean, as presented in the larger scope of a website and as
accessed only via links from elsewhere, definitely not. I guess I was
thinking primarily about how in general order is to be valued over chaos,
and throwing 100 HTML files of multi-various purpose and target audience
doesn't strike me as orderly.
