I agree with you completely. To me it's not about that JAWS has
individual lists. Only I am of the opinion that there is a reason that
two different screen readers have individual lists.

This is just how I surf the web, but I don't use the elements lists in
JAWS hardly at all anymore, now that I can use quick keys to jump from
link to link or heading to heading. One of the reasons I prefer this
approach is that I can use the context of the text around links with
names like "Click here" to see what they're referring to. I personally
wouldn't find this feature very useful, and I don't think this feature
is as useful in JFW as it was before they implemented quick key
navigation. Like I said, this is just my opinion, and how I surf the web.

Yes, it's really interesting. Before this discussion I was thinking the
lists are used more than the structural navigation. Because every one I
know is using the lists only.

I think that all three (structural navigation, single list, multiple
lists) options have their advantages and disadvantages. Depending on
your habits and use.

Because of this I would implement all three options.
