In fact the heuristic scoring will depend just on the product not to
disrespect it's principles (wich anybody can easily google to know about).
For instance desktops like Windows (seems the ExtJS goal)  fails miserably
and systematically (just hear users complains). We can do better. But if we
copy what we know that is wrong we had compromised our chance to do better.
Anyway that it's about user experience.

About your choice I guarantee you my best wishes in your challenge. For sure
I'll have interest in hear about your results and/or experience making that,
not to mention code of a new resource for this community from you.

	All the best,
