Another idea is to make it so that if a node has explicit node
pointers, then its menu would not be used to determine structural
relations between nodes.  The menu, along with the node pointers, would
be trusted to be correct, and intended by the author, but not used
for anything else.

We'd need specifics of possible irregular document structures to know
how well this idea would work.
