I think this is extremely useful. At the zeroth level it allows 
people to navigate through to their case(s) and find whether there 
are already solutions.

For my part I am interested in adding some form of "typing" and 
validation to the links - do the links actually point to the sort of 
"object" they say they do, and also to consistency of links.

If this can be pursued by the list I think it will have considerable 
general benefit.
