Hmm, that looks quite interesting and might be worth looking at when we've 
managed to build the collection up to hundreds or thousands of objects. At 
the moment I've been resisting the temptation to do much more application 
development on the site in preference for investing time in developing 
objects for the collection.

If there's some simple and quick way we can think of to clear up any 
confusion about how to display stuff, then I'd be keen to do that. I think 
the idea from Warp's response of indicating that you can 'Browse' the 
collection is a good and very straight forward one.

Do you think that would address the issue you raised?

This is the thinking behind encouraging people to index submissions with as 
many appropriate keywords as they can think of on the submission screens. 
It's also the reason that an object can be included in multiple categories. 
The intention is to make it as easy as possible for people trying to find
