It makes sense. The '..' link allow you to directly go back to the upper level
which, in the case of N sub-levels (e.g., docs/unix/foo/bar/mydoc) you have to
use the browesr back feature N times (where N is the amount of sub-levels)
while a '..' link allow you to switch to the upper level with only one click.

E.g. on you have to use the
back feature 2 times to back to docs/ (and 3 for the home page) while with a
'..' link you only have to click it once.

Well, same problem here: You need two
clicks to back to the home page (unless you use gU with Vimperator or other
evil stuff -- which I use :P); with the dot-dot link you only need one click.

Same as above.
