Do you have any form of longer explanation of this?  

I have been thinking about similar things (though not on a different site) including:

- document-centric approach
- significantly enhanced search
- user customisation of the interface (from the simple stuff of light/dark to the more complex of custom CSS)
- consistent URL naming between sites

and it would be useful to compare notes.
