Actually, I was just having a fixed set of elements that get chunked.
So a chapter, part, book, sect1, sect2, appendix, or section at most 2
levels deep would always be chunked. Anything else wouldn't. This
means that if you could still potentially chunk deeply, as in a set
containing a book containing a part containing a chapter containing a
sect1 containing a sect2.
However, what you proposed is fine too, and no more difficult to
implement, really. I'm mostly concerned with removing the inconsitancy
of something being both chunked and not. As to the matter of what to
chunk when, I'm pretty open.
