I am checking with the dial team to see what their intentions are - I need to understand more about what the dial can do versus what the dial should do.

I can't locate the video just now, but I have seen the demo of using 
the dial when editing music notation where the dial itself is used as 
an actual pointer to click/select part of the music sheet to highlight
 it for editing. So I don't think that statement is necessarily true.

@teddink @jacobrossi or any other MS folks... any thoughts on this?
