Hi Dave,

Thanks for sharing this document.  There are lots of great designs in 

I like a lot of the little proposals, like hovering a notification to 
open it's palette.  That could be an achievable change for 110.

The buddy view proposals are amazing in that document.  I would love to 
get them implemented some time.  Having a strong "buddy groups" system 
provide a good base for improving the teacher tools / LMS style tools 
in sugar.
