The file-oriented notion of design is related to document-oriented and even theme-oriented design; however, the interactivity of WWW files is more like a computer program than a document is like a computer program (especially in regard to navigation, linking, and views). So, elements of computer program design may have corresponding validity. (Though stated as my own thought, my comment responds to the quote above and is a question.)
Thus, one could think of the navigation, location, view, and other objects of an "online document", each designed for utility and working together.
