The Nautilus file manager allows the user to attach 'notes' to files.  Here is

I think this is along the line of what Brad was doing with 'messages'.  Gary
also mentioned to me that the host of a back-end application may want to state
that fact somewhere.

So, how about having a text widget where people can write all sorts of notes,
and have the notes kept as meta-data with the respective locus?  Plus, clicking
in an area of a composited GUI will switch notes to those of a 'sub-locus'
(locus contained within a composite).
