I'm new to all this;) so I'll just jump in for a minute before getting

Talking about details - why not have the sections on the universal stuff
(it seems like an acceptable way to do it) and in the details on the
universal stuff (menus, buttons, placements...) explain what makes them
gnomish.  The basic ideas would be there for any UI, but we wouldn't
have to be jumping around to see what makes them different.  Then have
another section which covers purely Gnome stuff (pie menus, session
management, help, panel applets...) maybe with a bent on what makes them
universal (for symmetry!)  Then everything would be permiated with a
gnome flavor (kinda like chicken?)
