Mark, it might be interesting for you to consider the case of “Multimedia TADS” (which was originally called HTML TADS) - it a version of the TADS IF language which allows the parser to output (among other things) clickable links, which are interpreted as parser input.

This is an important hybrid case, because it also makes one realize the difference between NOUN and VERB NOUN interaction. When you click on a RAT, will that click be interpreted as EXAMINE RAT? PICK UP RAT? ATTACK RAT? ….

The point is not that most inputs in a given IF be original in form - it is that, if even a single non-standard input is required to complete the traversal, then the interactor can't simply operate the text as if by Xbox controller ("N, S, W, UP, GET X, PUT Y IN Z...") - that is because there aren't standard buttons or interfaces for what they have to do - they need to first create the button in their mind, then press it. When even a single command will be non-standard, the task of reading constantly includes guesswork about potential interaction. And, unlike keywords / topics / links, these may only be impled: ("The dog shifts awkwardly on his chain, and tries itch his back against the post." &#62; PET DOG "The dog arches into your hand and whines discontentedly as you pat him on the back." &#62; SCRATCH DOG "Relieved at last, the dog slumps down and falls asleep.")
