2.5 is about trying something new.
WordPress has in the past had a "simple" and "advanced" posting interface.
We've also had an interface where almost everything was draggable and
I'm intimately familiar with how and why these worked or didn't work,
and that's why we're going to try something new. We've kept some things
for years that seem to work well virtually untouched, but when things
are a big source of support issues and confusion (like the dashboard and
write page were) I think it's worth not being content with the status
quo and reaching for something more.
