UIOptions Endgame

Hi Antranig and Justin,

Can we be more specific about the work we want to do to improve UI Options' configurability prior to code freeze? What changes should we make? Who should make them? And roughly how long do we estimate they will take?

In principle, I agree that we shouldn't ship UI Options in a form that is completely impossible to configure. But we need to answer these questions before we can consider amending the bug parade list with a new JIRA or two to address these configurability issues.

Although I think we know that things aren't perfect at the moment. Meaning that the component may be hard to configure at times. However if we cannot make use of the configuration at all, as you mention, this should be a blocker.

I found during my work on the simplification demo that this is not possible with the component as it stands, even for the functionality committed to for this release. I think, for example, if we could demonstrate that the user could configure the "classnameMap" which is sent in to the UIEnhancer, this would go a long way towards demonstrating that component configuration was possible.
