Its scope is awfully limited. It focuses on "how similar this is to
windows". We don't need such stuff. I don't care at all about this
stuff, and assertions like

	Relevant Usability Principle: Match between system and the real	world.

where the "real world" is "windows computers" are definitely pointless.
