Yes, interesting.
I asked them about whether they intend to keep it "teling us" instead
of "discussing it" (no email list but an email), and mentioned some
thoughts of mine, which I share here:

- the design fails without javascript [why javascript often bad or
non-applicable is a long thread itself]

- it (often) wastes screen space

- "wiki" is ***NOT*** wikipedia, nor is it wikimedia, nor is it a
brand or a trademark or a name of one entity. it's like saying

- it did not seem to touch one of the most important part deserving
more professional attention: typography.
