Yes, and that is the function of a Content Management System, Forrest is 
  an XML publishing framework not a CMS.

The Daisy plugin already provides full control over linking and site 
navigation (not document types). The proposed Lenya plugin will do even 
more if we ever get it off the ground (Lenya handles different doc types).

It doesn't seem to make sense to me to duplicate this work, instead we 
should focus on a tighter integration with CMS systems. The Daisy plugin 
shows the way (and it is *really* easy).
