This is very interesting.
It could almost be a description of my first XML project, "Noise".
There are a set of frames for each "thing" each providing different views
of the same data, I was even planning to make pictures of intersecting
planes to visually map the relationships, using SVG or VRML :)

My back ground is in design, where the concepts you discuss exist, but the
analogies are completely different, you are a wacky man :)

Any more talk of the Romans inventing space travel, is going to take you
over the edge :)

I've always preferred option (a).
I find query parameters aesthetically displeasing, particularly on public URLs.
Keep query params for when there is really no other option IMHO.
