Reaction: Task taxonomy for graph visualization

Analyzing graphs become easier if broken down to a set of simple tasks. The paper lists such simple tasks required while analysing a complex graph. The paper also defines basic terms such as nodes, links and path etc. I found this a tad unnecessary because if a person is trying to analyse a complex graph, he would be more interested in applying or minimizing the tasks required.
It would have been more informative if the paper considered giving examples where analyzing a graph involved considering two graph tasks such as topology and attribute based tasks.
