The default skin, the one that ships with NS6, is the one that 99.9 percent of the people will use.

All thinking related to skins must reflect this.

Okay, I think I'm getting closer to understanding your point.

Is this similar to the Mac's User Interface Guidelines? If so, then I'm 100% in your camp.

Does this mean that it should be tough to deviate from the basic model? Like with Manila -- you can change EVERYTHING if you want to, but it's far easier to leave most of the elements the same and just tweak colors and maybe a little bit of layout.

Could this be done by providing an easily useable XUL framework? Sort of like MacApp and the like.
