CLARIFICATION ON THE INFO HIERARCHY DESCRIPTION.
You can limit the items at each level to 5-10 entries - thus if you discussed the entire hierarchy it would be a max of 5 * 5 * 5 = 125 items if you went three levels down. This should limit the amount of work on very complex sites. The top most levels should be more fully delimited than the lower levels.
