Not that I disagree with your primary point, it is worth noting that there
is some basis for hovering about 7, for an *overall* model.
It's that memory limit thing (7, plus or minus 2.) The plus or minus is
statistical, so if you want to make sure that people really have no trouble
grokking the total set, 5 is a better choice.
