Some time ago I made a note about appearances of UI controls.
As we will not specify UI structure soon and -even when- we may stay away from relative positioning anyhow and go with absolute positioning of UI controls, a list of appearances 'Standard, Greyed, Hidden, Informational' is fine with me.
An entry 'no display without even taking space' would only make sense with relative positioning.
I changed a few feature list names, as I am trying to keep a little more consistency in the naming.
Although we do not specify UI structure soon, a driver may like to show certain features as check boxes, relying on finding exactly two entries for such a feature. As in 'C' programming FALSE is often the default for a boolean, we make it a rule that we specify the FALSE case first for a feature with exactly two elements working as a toggle.
This statement overrules previous ones.
