I agree but with ever more powerful computers and systems designed for 
multiple users with multi touch it is becoming a distinct possibility.

Minority Report interfaces are very nearly upon us. Automating the tools 
as much as possible will help us stay ahead of the curve ;-)

Won't be long before we have dedicated hardware using these tools 
running in all serious mid tier production houses and creatives swarming 
all over the place with wacky usability requirements.
