This paper outlines a number of problems with RST's Elaboration relation, and discusses a new model of text structure that results from leaving this relation out of the set of relations. In this model, trees of interclausal/intersentential relations account for the local coherence of a text, while its global coherence is accounted for by a separate device: global focus.
