UX Toolkit. Whaa?

I always wondered about the use of the word "toolkit" in this case,  
since what we're talking about seems (to me, at least) to actually  
include more than just tools. There is also a lot of education,  
guidelines, best practices, etc., in addition to the actual tools. For  
this reason, I like "handbook" - I think it covers the broader ground  
that we cover.

Regarding "design" versus "designer's," I thought one of the goals of  
the <thing> was to provide design help to a wider audience than just  
designers, i.e. to also be useful for developers, etc. For this  
reason, I think I prefer "design" to "designer's."


+1 for "Design Handbook"
