I think you get the tree view wrong. The "middle children" approach
seems not to convey the real meaning to me-- which is: The center of the
childrens' rank == the center of the parent cell + a gap constant.
But the issues get more complex... like in this structure:
A - A2
B - B3
Here, the A node went up so as to be in the middle of the A1-A3 rank.
Anyway, specifying this is much easier when you can address the center
of a rank directly, instead of worrying about "middle children."
