you are looking at it wrong -- and applying the concepts to the wrong parts --    but this is a closed item so I don't want to get us wrapped up in this until we get the other ones done.

However, I thought it would be useful to look at it with the new UI Context definition, to help evaluate that definition and where we might use it.  My thoughts on this can be found at the Applying UI Context page in the third row, but to facilitate discussion, I reiterate them here.
