There is now an Editing Explainer [1] and a User Intentions Explainer [2], which should help scope the problems and help us drive forward on both areas. I haven't done much to fine tune them yet, but please let me know if you have feedback on this split from the initial Commands Explainer document. Thanks!

Are there objections to this approach? If not, I will begin to adapt the Commands Explainer into a more generic Intentions Explainer.
