This is an interesting take on some of these issues, notably how to provide the baseline capability that most people use most often, while also providing a smooth path to more complex use cases. The "transforming" of content into data and structure. This is probably a result of how I interpret what you wrote, but your description here seems to leave out the idea of multiple representation and transformation of data in view but not structure (that you've written about previously, and which attracted me most to Formable in the first place). I wrote some ideas of my own on that previously here: https://garden.oshyan.com/t/a-continuum-of-functionality-and-data-representation/145

But I'm most interested in how those ideas (and the nifty animations you've scattered throughout the website that illustrate them) connect with the spatial free-form-to-table ideas here.
