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.
