A similar thought occurred to me in regard to /View. In retrospect,
REBOL/View could have been the "core" of the gui features, and REBOL/VID (or
REBOL/View/VID) the loaded version. Product confusion would (and should)
exclude this option at this point. Besides, /VID would not then adequately
convey the other bundled features (schemes, etc).
Given that it is unlikely that RT would be bold and brazen enough to
_rename_ current products, then I personally would gravitate more toward:
REBOL/Face (originally proposed by Chris RG. IIRC)
or incorporating a variation on Laurence G's suggestion (REBOL/Baseview):
Did anyone mention the following? (other possibilities)
or, by extension of the path/refinement concept:
These later two suffer from a conceptual incongruity by suggesting that
/GUI and /GDI are already incorporated within REBOL/Base. Maybe those two
should be nixed on talking it out. :-)

Or even just REBOL/Viewbase, incorporating Laurence's and Mike's ideas.
In a tribute to the dark side, will we eventually see REBOL/ECMA?
