Re: working on the image - try 2

Skye - It just occurred to me that it would be an interesting exercise 
to indicate which Design Guide Pattern each of your points matches. And 
if they are not, perhaps there are some gaps we need to look at filling. 
This would be a way to test out the Patterns in a fairly realistic 
scenario. Some points may be more WCAG or general good UI design, but 
for others you raise a cognitive issue which we can match against a 

However, as of now, some of the Patterns have recently been reworked for 
the coming release of Content Usable. This new content is in separate 
Google Docs until merged, so it takes a little more work to access. 
However, that said, the the latest draft in GitHub Pages has enough 
current info for understanding the Pattern.

Would you be interested in doing this?
