more link questions

I am wondering why it is stated that a STEPS value of 2 is 
appropriate when using a hub document that contains all the extended 
links. Surely, STEPS=1 is all that is required, as it should not be 
necessary to process the other documents in the collection to look 
for extended links.

When using a URL to locate a document on the local system, should the 
protocol be 'file://', or is this a default if no protocol is given? 
This question applies to entities as well as links, of course.
