A couple of newbie comments, if I may:

First, seeing Tetris sitting there in the image, I got the idea that it
was an exemplar of how to work in Morphic. And I still think that that
is a reasonable expectation. If Tetris is not kosher, then by following
it I am likely to break the framework, as any other newbie would be.

Second, yesterday was the first that I had heard about a framework to
break. A few weeks ago I asked about good design in Morphic and did not
get much response (although Ned Konz was helpful. Thanks, Ned! :-)). If
it has rules, where are they? I would very much like to find out about

Best regards,
