Here's the reference I promised to post. If any of you are interested in
the psycholinguistic concept of "chunking," please email me for a
bibliography. I still maintain that the concept of "chunking" is a
mis-applied justification for dividing text into modules of information.

The reference for the magic number seven:

Miller, G.A. 1956. ³The magical number seven, plus or minus two: Some
limits on our capacity for processing information.² Psychology Review 63:
