RE: [ui-best-practices-working-group] Todays presentation

Seems like this kind of feature request/discussion would best be discussed
on a bug report?  Which makes me wonder whether it would make sense for us
to create a ui-best-practices-inbox@xxxxxxxxxxx email address that such UI
discussion items could be assigned to or CC'd on?  That would make it easier
for us to watch them and chime in if appropriate.
