            I like where they're going with the design. I can already see how there's multiple ways to do the same thing (which is something that I always appreciate in an interface).

                  You'll have to enlighten us how you came to that conclusion. Becuase I see words, but I don't think they can be used in this sitution without some 3-5 supporting arguements with evidence.
