Tabs in word processor documents.

I was thinking about school all those many years ago and writing research papers
and I realized how helpful tabs in a word processor would have been. I used to
append paragraphs here and there while researching and in the end perform one
huge marathon cut and paste to organize the document. Then cull the parts that,
while possibly relevant, ruined the flow or didn't quite fit. It would have been
much easier to organize had I been able to dump notes into titled tabs and then
move the tabs or content into a final paper.

Even now when I need to take extensive notes on something it would be great to
be able to have several tabs open on a word processing document. Even better,
for my business uses, it would be nice to be able to create a tab that is either
spreadsheet OR word processing and housed in one document file. 

Oooh and a table of contents that allows hyperlinks to each tab. (Ok I'm at risk
of going off the deep end here.) 

The point is that I see allot of potential uses for tabbed word processing
documents. (Tabs within a document as opposed to opening several documents in tabs)
