I'm not sure I understand what a directory/area is and thus don't 
understand the difference between moving between and within a directory 
area?  Assuming a tree type structure, I would assume that this means 
moving within the same node list of the tree and to different node lists 
rather than moving between different tree controls?

Given the following tree structure
1 node one
        1.1 node one point one
        1.2 node one point two
                1.2.1 node one point two point one
        1.3 node one point three
                1.3.1 node one point three point one
                1.3.2 node one point three point two
                1.3.3 node one point three point three
2 node two

I assume that moving node 1.3.2 under node 1.2 would be covered under the 
first use case of depositing an object to another directory area?  And, 
that moving node 1.3.3 to the first position under node 1.3 is covered 
under the second use case of depositing an object to someplace else in the 
current directory area?

What about other use cases of moving objects around in a grid layout?  I'm 
not sure how directory/area would be applied here.

thanks,
