I hoped you would chime in with this point, because it's a great example 
of the kind of thing that is not top-of-mind for me unless prompted. 
That's why we need diverse voices who are thinking about different users 
to come together and apply their collective experience.

It goes without saying that you have my vote if you ever want to run for 
the TC ;)
