Could you point me to the exact phrase where I said that writing should be
unstructured chaos? I never said that Martin, that is not my argument. You're
twisting my argument around to suit your needs.

My argument is that a PROCESS to produce documentation should never supersede
the content. Of course documents should be organized. But that organization
should flow from the content not some pre-determined unmovable hierarchy.
