Geni, I think that's a flawed argument, if I understand you correctly.

Sure, it was there before... under radically different conditions.  No  
one can say that the editing/reading habits of users then are the same  
as the editing/reading habits of users now.

I like the idea of giving it a shot, and congratulate Rand and his  
team for some nifty looking designs.
