      Presentation Registry

      Description

      The current solutions registry is organised by solution. All settings are listed with their associated solution. We have also chosen to define multiple solutions for Windows features (because they are provided by different sub-components, configured differently, et cetera). Each setting has a short definition that describes what values are allowed. This definition currently includes rudimentary information (title and description) that can be used to generate user interfaces, such as Steven Githens has done in his work on the capture tool and the dev-PMT.

      For the future, we need to break out this part of the solutions registry into a separate "presentation registry", which provides a means of:

      1. Clearly indicating hints, labels, and help information for each setting.
      2. Defining arbitrary groups of settings, and groups of groups.
      3. Clearly establishing the order in which settings should appear.

      My initial thinking is that the presentation registry itself would provide the core patterns (how to define and make use of UI overlays and groups). It should also provide one or two useful "starter" groupings. The most useful example would be simple grouping settings by OS and solution, including collapsing the multiple "Windows OS" entries into a single "rollup" entry.
