I don't like this for some reason.
I guess I'm just having difficulty seeing why we have to completely
ditch iq:browse already.

Point 1 is worthless, if that's such a big deal we can change the
iq:browse JEP. I wrote the JEP that way because I thought that would be
easiest. If everyone would rather have tons of categories and types
without any prior knowledge of what they might be (thus not allowing for
things like winjab's icons when browsing), then fine, but I think you
lose something when you make it too open. 

I can understand the rest of the points, I guess, but there's just
something about it that I don't like. Maybe after I'm done trying to
cram for these goddamn AP exams I'll think about it more...
