Content Organization Methods Comparison

I wrote a short comparison of a few IA tools: authority lists, thesauri, and faceted approaches. I kept it pretty simple so that it could be given out to clients. It also includes "full-text search" as a method, since my client was in favor of using just search as an interface into 4000-5000 content items. I was trying to make the case that additional work on developing a thesaurus (at least) would improve the site in a number of ways.

Any comments are welcome. Word .doc, about 90k.
