I like this, it's very simple and straightforward - and with images. 
yahoo.  I like this as a top layer.  The checkpoint text in the draft I'm 
about to release is still cumbersome or possibly confusing at times.  At 
any rate, we'll have to see how to synch these up.

Based on the theory that people misinterpret checkpoints because they only 
read the checklist, if we used shorter catch phrases or provided a 
Guideline Guide instead of a checklist, people would have to read a bit 
more about what we're saying - they would have to touch the next 
layer.  Although, would this satisfy the many people who use the checklist 
on its own, ala Dick Brown's experiences at Microsoft? He has talked about 
taking just the checklist to developers.

It's something to consider, although probably not something we will change 
too much before we push this draft out for the public eye.  I propose we 
add this question to the open issues list.  Unless, we package the 
Guideline Guide, the Guidelines w/checkpoints, and the Checkpoint map 
between 1.0 and 2.0 for our first public draft.

most excellent work geeze.
