Hi Daphne/Allison

We had an interesting discussion here yesterday about User Interface  
Transformations.  We did a brainstorming session on UI Adaption and  
UI Configuration and what might be some use cases.  Here is the link  
to Colin's document.
http://wiki.fluidproject.org/display/fluid/Architecture+Overview

Ideas from our brainstorming:
UI Adaption:
- Flexible layouts and linearization
- Enhanced Navigation
- Alternative Control Strategies
- Control
	- keyboard remapping for avoiding conflicts, alt. tabbing behaviors
	- quicker more efficient keyboard navigation

One thing that came out of our discussion was that while we have some  
good ideas about ways people may want to make the user interface more  
adaptive, we don't have any research on this.  So perhaps we can  
include in our user research plan ways to gather some information on  
users who need their interdaces transformed, how, and under what  
contexts, etc.

Just wanted to put this up for discussion since we're working on the  
user research plan.

cheers
Barbara
