by removing the need to navigate a non-spatial data set spatially.
This is a very bad thing. Muscle memory is unlike any other kind of human memory in that it almost never fades. If you learn to play the piano, don't play for 20 years, and then go back to it, your muscle memory will be almost 100% intact. I talk from experience here...
Furthermore, memory experts (I mean those who participate in memory contests) specifically make spatial associations with the objects the need to remember because humans have a very good spatial memory and can remember far more spatial relationships than the standard "5 to 9" items in short-term memory. And unlike you, I even have a reference.
