Hi, folks-

We've had many people report that they are discouraged, intimidated, and 
confused by the current set of flags.

Julee and I discussed this when I was giving her the rundown of the 
recent Seattle Doc Sprint, and we think perhaps we should remove most of 
the flags.

We propose the following 3 flags (for now):
1) Unconfirmed Imported Content: for MSDN or other automated content

2) Needs Review: general purpose, for people who want to review of the 
content they've changed, or people who want to flag something as odd

3) Needs Examples: For pages where the examples aren't up to snuff, or 
no examples exist. (In writing this email, it occurs to me that we could 
also add flags for each of the WPW tasks, but I haven't thought deeply 
about it.)

I propose that we discuss the flags on this thread for the next week, 
then next week, we change the templates to remove most of the flags.

Changes to the visible style will be done later.
