Using the relativistic light-cone description of the two-nucleon system we argue that experimental confirmation of the recently observed structure in the deuteron magnetic form factor at Q22 (GeV/c)2 would provide new independent evidence in favor of the dominant role of nucleonic degrees of freedom in the deuteron.
