Exactly! There are technical remedies to eliminate any kind of linking to anything other than the homepage.

Site being framed?
Boom! No more frames.

Referrer not part of your site?
Redirect to homepage.

Images/rich media being requested without the accompanying webpage?
Access denied or 404 not found.

Can you imagine how stifling it would be to use a website that only let you come in the front door?

P.S. Calvin illustrates the effects of forced linking better than I did.
