Hi;

I got the impression a mailtool application was suggested as an example of a
data grid. If correct, Landmark navigation feels like it would be a more
appropriate navigational schema than data grid navigation. It would make
life a little easier if true. One problem with this simplification would be
giving clear guidance on the point at when data presented in a grid format
should change from a data grid navigation schema to a Landmark navigation
schema instead.

My guess is the Cntrl+ and Shift+ key sequences would only be appropriate
within a cell when in Action mode. Having these features apply across cell
boundaries [at the sibling cell level] would difficult to present if the
sibling cells weren't contiguous.
