Hi Kevin, Dave, et al

@Kevin, thanks for the questions, very much.

Now if only there were some good answers... 

Speaking only from what I've been putting up the idea(s) that I try to
keep in mind are:

Change as evolution over revolution.

One community member, Graham Lauder, has done I think I think are
putting forward the idea of more radical change, from the perspective of
visual branding. I believe he, maybe someone else, has started putting
together some wiki pages covering a branding language - that needs to be
expanded most likely.

Anyway - I mostly just wanted to ping back and say that this is
something that needs attention and look forward to new ideas and
efforts...so welcome!

Best wishes,

//drew
