No, it's immensely non-specific at the moment. In current GUIs, "Window,
Icon, Menu, Pointer" (WIMP) are the first-class objects that matter most.
The current Topaz discussion is all about first-class objects that really
matter to users -> people, documents, events, etc. Don't try to nail it down
too much, it's not even close to relevance yet.

(It's really off-topic for this list, and it's not really going to be of
concern for some time.)
