Locations are actually driven by the bytes in the digital file.

you don't need to no the arcana, you just need to know that location 100 is the same spot regardless of the font size.

That's why they need to use locations, because the font size is variable.  if you try to relate page 100 on one kindle to page 100 of the same book on another Kindle you'll be chasing your tail, unless they happen to both be using the same font size.

location 100, on the other hand, will be the same spot on both Kindles...

When I start a book, I click on "Go to Location" on my K1. It tells me how many locations there are in the books. Somehow, knowing that makes me feel better. It's best to adjust to looking at the dots to figure out approximately where you are.
That's not necessary on the K2, the last location is displayed at the right end of the progress bar, and the percentage read is displayed.
