Breadcrumb Navigation Trails
One of the things my other content management system lets me do is write scripts that use the folder names to get a "breadcrumb trail" of where my reader is in my website.
Good idea. You would need some way to associate a default document with a folder (or let the web server do it, I guess).
If you mean have document in a folder with the same name as the folder and then add a keyword to that document, then yes, that might work.
