Make navigation in the Article Section easier

Hi I know I am a bit late to throw this WhitePaper in, but it may will find recognition.

1. Introduction
1.1 Scope

The Improvement of this should be, to easier navigate to Articles, as they are in a familier structure.
Also with this, we could move easaly to a new Folder Structure, from the Section - Category Layout.
1.2 License
GNU GPL
2. What is the current issue?
Right now, it is really hard to navigate to Articles if your Site is huge.

3. What are the proposed improvements?
With this it would be a familiar Structure to everyone, and especially for Newcomers, it would be easier to dive into Joomla.
Also, if we are going to change the current Section-Category Structure, to a Folder based Structure, we could stick with the same Layout

4. Effects on...
4.1 Users
There is no negative effect to be expected on the user.
4.2 3P extensions
There is no negative effect to be expected on 3P extensions, as long as we stick to Sections and Categories, only using this as a new Layout
4.3 Performance
There should be no Effect on Performance.

5. Implementation:
5.1 It should be fairly easy to integrate it for the Current Section Category Structure.

I have Attached a Picture to show you what I mean.

In the Image,
"Home" and "2nd Main Folder" would be a Section,
and
"Sub Folder 1", "Sub........" would stand for Categories.
