Hi Jared,
I have one objection - it's too complicated (the language form). A lot of us - 
users/contributors/etc are not native English speakers and it's not easy to 
understand - that's a problem for vision - it should be clear. I had to use 
dictionary for "pervasive" and it didn't help me - probably I need a better 
advanced dictionary ;-)
