Hi Aaron,

Thanks for your suggestions, these are great. I've improved labelling  
in Item 3, and will include a code snippet illustrating how to create  
namespaces in JavaScript.

Examples sound good; I'll see what I can dig up and what Eli has in  
mind as well.

I'm planning to distribute this checklist more widely in the Sakai and  
uPortal communities later this week.

> I would also recommend code snippets for item 2. For example, how
> would I create a bit of custom JS code that is namespaced? What would
> a few sample prefixes look like?
> Item 3 would benefit from clearer labelling. It is not completely
> clear to me that opaque is bad so maybe tweak the wording or just put
> something like "this is bad".
> Nice job!
