It sounds like Craig is proposing a rapid redesign of the dialogs over
the next few weeks.  If that's the case then IMO everything should be
on the table.  Now that we've seen the limitations of shale dialog
"out in the wild" its time to correct things now before its too late.
 I would agree that lots of the existing stuff is viable but it
doesn't hurt to think out of the box before we commit ourselves to
what we have.
