Um, I think you missed the point.  The goal is to start by finding

people *actually* do in real life. Not specs, data points.

Sorry, we need to start with the horrid:


Document everything: the good, the bad, and the ugly.  Only then can

from current practice.

In this case, we need to document Yahoo, MSN, AskJeeves, Amazon, etc....
