I get the feeling that it would be nice if you could mention some specific
OS X applications/windows where sheets are used in a way you like.

Are sheets always within a window?  Or never?  I saw also "sheets"(?) that 
slide out at the side of an image viewer, showing multiple thumbnails IIRC.  
Are these also called sheets?  When would you use which?
