Based on this, it would seem to be correct to mark a button to start a new email or online document as either “new” or “compose”. I don’t think that is going to be helpful.

I think that compose sounds like a combination of “new” and “edit”.  What do the existing metadata for purposes (e.g. schema.org) do for this situation?

Per my Action item, I would like to propose the following new definition for the term "New" (and modified definition for the term "Compose"):

  *   New: Create a new item (e.g. an email, online document, etc.)
  *   Compose: Start the process of creating new editorial content by the user (e.g. compose an email, blog post, online document, etc.)

[Jason] Compose: create and start the process of editing a new file or content item (e.g., an email message, forum post, document, spreadsheet or diagram).

Feedback gratefully welcomed.
