The answer is not, structured vs non-structured...

...the question is structured, non-structured, or semi-structured.

There are 36 types of tomato sauce on the shelf in the local super market. Multiple needs, multiple tastes.

I would argue that there is no such thing as "non-structured." Having a handle to which something may be referred is structure. Calling something "non-structured" refers to something and negates the claim :)

It seems to me that the question is in regard to the type of structure. The wireless folks call un-managed networks "ad-hoc." But this is pretty generic, since there are many types of structure to ad-hoc networks. Mattw is fond of olsr.

Blah blah blah.

It is not the content/type of data, it is about how you reference.

An image that you just pump out? It has structure, but as far as you are concerned it could be just another file.
