To clarify: Does this mean we'll be using /node/id for future urls? I hope not. 
Any blogging system you pick up in this day and age can easily produce useful 
urls, surely we should be able to?

/node seems to be useless cruft to me, and since articles need titles, what's 
wrong with a url specifying the date and title, or better yet (if titles are 
currently forced to be unique) the title alone.
