Thanks for your thoughts, Lane. All good points. Just on this:

"Having a banner would be a break from tradition to make a much bolder
quality claim with content much lower in quality than the articles which
get that star."

I'll only be referring to BMJ articles that have recently passed the
Featured Article Candidate or Featured Article Review processes. This is a
step up from FA.

As Daniel mentions, the idea of using the "article improvement banner"
format rather than the infobox for this was mooted by Magnus in the
unconference discussion. There seemed to be unanimity on the potential for
blowback from MOS (and other) concerns, and Magnus (and Daniel, I think)
thought that using the banner might attract less furor than trying to
insert it in the infobox.

This is all just speculation and gut-feeling. If Magnus is already active
in the infobox space then I'm inclined to trust his instincts on that one.

There is a hole in most articles between the FA star in the top right
corner and the top of the infobox that I think would be perfect, and is
about the right size, in my opinion (but that's not exactly replicating the
maintenance tags).

Daniel, thanks for clarifying your position. Regarding your last point, a
trial on Wikisource would carry very little weight on en.Wikipedia, so I'd
prefer to begin on en.Wikipedia. I take your point that this whole thing -
Wikimedia content that is effectively a [[WP:RS]]  - will need to find a
good fit in all of Wikimedia's projects.

So, Daniel, if I can come up with a not-ugly template/MediaWiki
thing/whatever, I'll ping you and ask you what you think about it sitting
on top of the Comp. Biol. articles.

I guess I ask Magnus now.

I'll let this list know what happens. More criticism and feedback welcome.
