I think starting with Writer is a good way to go. Once people "like"
the UI, then it can be extended to the other apps.

This is not about whether Writer is a good place to start. This is about
the fact that Paulo made a single mockup. He has more than likely
forgotten many things and he has not even had the chance to visualise so
many other things. Also keep in mind that this is not a very functional
mockup, just a visually appealing one, so WYS is not WYG. (The template
manager is a good example for this too, I think [1].)

I agree his bitmap isn't the most useful starting point for hacking a
radical UI: a bitmap is not a specification, there are unanswered
questions about it, it doesn't appear to have input from other people,
etc. I'm here to see if there is a better bitmap, or a better

The amount of work to implement has little to do with the completeness
of the specification. Just about anything you draw can be mostly built
in a few months full-time. The benefit is that if there is a more
thought-out starting point, then the coding will evolve to the happy
endpoint faster. That template manager spec has a lot more
information. Even something like that would be better.
