A couple of little tiny enhancements that would remove the sharp edges from SCT.
1.  Make designer task tolerant of bad design element references.  Currently, if a design element is deleted from an SCT template, all hell breaks loose in target databases, even if the element is no longer used by design.  Those who have used SCT are 90% likely familiar with this problem and 70% of those have vowed not to touch SCT again for as long as they live. :)  IT IS CURRENTLY CRUCIAL TO NEVER DELETE DESIGN ELEMENTS FROM AN SCT TEMPLATE THAT MAY HAVE BEEN REFERENCED ANYWHERE ON THE DOMINO SERVER AT ANY POINT IN HISTORY.
2.  Currently, applying changes from a SCT requires a 2 step process of refreshing design then using the compact task to convert design elements into references to the SCT design elements (and optionally recover all that free space).  The second step is crucial in order to realise the benefit of SCT (ie reference elements instead of full elements). This process is stupid because Designer  re-instates the full design elements in all target databases as though it has no idea that the source template is SCT.   The Compact task has to be then used to delete them all again and replace them with reference notes.
