I agree that this is incredibly important, and something that has always 
been sorely lacking. This may be getting too far into implementation 
details, but if you think about the learning process, it often includes 
organizing and highlighting. It would be very different experience if 
you could always easily discover, modify, organize and share interface 
controls.

Cheers,
Kim
