Book module does what its name suggests: it allows you to chapterise (is that
a word?) a long set of articles.
It /can/ be used as outliner. Somehow but it certainly IS not an outliner. And
I keep on chanting my mantra:
"it is not about the name, it is about what the interface and system
communicates to the users"
Hell, I as a Dutchy would think funny things are happening at flickr. I would
have no idea what delicious is about (cake, recepies, h0t Ch1xx). nor what an
orkut is. And what does the name RSS/RDF learn me? Nothing. Yet everyone
seems to know what its about.
The /name/ is but a small, if not tiny, part of the whole communication.
Simply changing the name will make hardly any difference. For example: did we
see a decrease in the amout of rants about taxonomy being so hard now that it
is called classification? I certainly see no less confused people in this
