Re: [platform-ui-dev] Undo/Redo Proposal

Dave made a very good point, which I'd like to reiterate:
I suspect this represents a general belief that the user is more 
interested in interaction with the document, not the user interface, so 
you don't clutter the undo stack with ui gestures.   UI interaction is 
also unconscious for the user, whereas doc interaction is conscious (the 
focus of attention). 

Anything which focusses attention away from the content is distracting and 
counterproductive, so undo/redo should be limited to model changes.
(We still have the problem of how to deal with multiple models, however).
