Each field is really an independent wiki, whereas groups are all
part of the same wiki. That's why I proposed an intermap-like markup.
I'm trying to make it easier for a particular site administrator;
the actual writers definitely see their fields as independent.
But others may, as you suggest, nudge more towards a field as a
group of groups.
