I was just reading an article, this morning, about the trainwreck of new
gestures to accommodate the X's lack of a home button, and I guess what the
author was saying is pretty much what I'm trying to say:  If it isn't
obvious and easy, then it's wrong.  Keep the language on the level of what
a grade schooler would grasp and not forget.  If that means we chop down
several objects into the graphic object, and just add a "type" property,
then so be it.  Most of these other proposals don't keep it simple.

-- 
On the first day, God created the heavens and the Earth
On the second day, God created the oceans.
On the third day, God put the animals on hold for a few hours,
   and did a little diving.
And God said, "This is good."
