No. There are virtually no design changes being proposed that actually 
come with a patch, so nothing needs to be decided on.

What do you mean by "supported"? Officially supported, so that you can 
make a help desk call if it won't work? None.

Or do you mean that the browser should be able to use the site? All of 
them, plus any other browser you can think of, including Lynx and wget.

Please submit a patch. I have no clue what a label of a form is.

Again, please submit a patch.

Please submit a patch; this would probably need to get support of this list.

> - - Have downloads readily available on the right side of the screen (at
> least the latest release).

Not sure what that means; please submit a patch.

> - - Look sternly at the top right floating account information page.

Hmm. Whom do you want to look sternly?

The key here really is "I ... do". This sounds good.
