This is not entirely true. I made a plugin that does a *lot* of what SB
does while working on a project for my job.
I, too, need to change H2's and other elements on the page
significantly, and I didn't want to duplicate the page in code (for the
same reasons you cited.)
the look and feel of the post page -- including, at points, removing or
adding new form elements.
I know, not every one has JS, but if we put aside that single digit
percentage (who probably DONT run blogs, let along Structured Blogs)
this is actually a really nice solution. Utilizing things like
cssQuery and some handy hooks in the admin_head allows you to get
styles ready, and then at the post_editing (wrong name) hook you can
insert the appropriate JS and BAM! it's good to go.
If this (JS) really doesn't appeal to you that's cool. I don't know that
2.0(1.6) would get these changes, but plugin hooks certainly aren't too
much to ask of 2.1 (2.0.1?)
