I would like to expand them a little, in each case making it possible to  
use existing content, or expose content directly to the user enabling them  
to change the software they use, or even use multiple tools on the same  
content - a web app one day, a different one next week, a piece of  
shrink-wrap software from time to time.

And add:

* A document management system as hybrid web app, allowing file-based  
access to the documents as well.

cheers
