Those guidelines (unfortunately) never got very far and were certainly
far from set in stone. I'm not sure what to suggest on that count- you
might want to restart the discussion on the usability list, with your
specific use-case in mind. Probably it's going to take someone with a
lot of patience to hammer something through the usability list. [And
possibly willing to write code to enforce the behaviors decided on by
the usability list.]
