should be exploited more to aggregate like content and make navigation
easier. One of the best examples for effective use of trails I have seen is
the Java documentation at java.sun.com.

You may have missed this page:

which has been around for a while and has more or less set the naming 
standard that many authors use to classify their pages using the 
%audience%  markup.
