--That is one great buzzword, Nick.
It captures the essence of "fine grained addressability"
but in a way that has the flavor and nuance of a fine
swiss watch, or synchronized swimmers: elegance, grace,
accuracy -- all of that.
--The concept of "precision" can also be extended to
cover the capability to include the target text inline,
display a link to it, or hide the link so it is available
when you make a extra gesture (say, a right click). In
other words, you can specify with precision how the link
should be treated.
--Finally, you can specify the precise view that should
greet the user when the link is traversed.
"precision links" is a buzzword that could easily catch on!
