I have a related question:

For what are people using "folding" ?

Is it mainly as a navigational aid, or is it mainly for getting a view
of structure w/o content ? Or something else ?

I've nothing against folding and use it myself, but I've been wondering
whether, a combination of navigational markers (with associated
keystrokes for moving amongst them) and some kind of additional
"structural view" of the document might be as good as, or preferable to
folding ? Or is there something intrinsically appealing about
folding/collapsing ?
