To fix this, I think we need:

I'd certainly be quite happy for the HIG to include a list of common alert messages... we only give one or two now, and they're only really given as examples, rather than "please use this verbatim if it fits your situation".

Perhaps we could set up an area on UsabilityTeam or ( to list the messages that people most want to see, and decide on their wording before adding them to the HIG? Seems like it would get a bit unwieldy to do it in a bug report.
