Er.. huh? How can a document driven app be used to perform tasks other
than on the documents it provides? Are you saying that I should be able
to browse the web in Konsole? What does this mean?

What's wrong with the consistancy of "We have a default to SDI, but users can
choose whatever they want".

The only way to gain consistancy is not to put the user in handcuffs. This is not a
viable option for any program.
