The only "extended" meaning of {nav} that I see (and use) is when it's
intended as a "page" of a book or larger document.  For the idea of a
"report" or "article", {ghItlh} "manuscript" seems appropriate.

I was assuming that this {nav} was talking about a page, not a "paper"
such as would be presented at a conference.
