Abstract: We show that the homotopic nilpotency of the algebra of piecewise polynomial forms on a simply-connected, finite type, CW-complex coincides with the strong L.S. category of the rationalization of that space. This is used to prove that, in the rational, simply-connected context all reasonable notions of cone-length agree. Both these two results are obtained as parts of a more general and functorial picture.
