No, I disagree. The halo is a _meta_ thing in morphic. I don't feel that
a double-click is a valid causative agent for a meta thing. I probably
can't explain it terribly well and I certainly don't have time to try
right now but it seems to me that d-click should be an operation
relating to the application behaviour.

Actually the morphic halo has so much damn stuff in it that it probably
breaks any possible sensible rule of UI goodness.
