comment Window model for document-centric analysis
Thanks for all your suggestions. I am still considering to what degree this seems applicable. Regarding the 'new' issue, new bundles are created in a suite of other tools (each for the correct file type). This is a standalone tool that takes a broader view of the bundle and cross-file interactions.

@Blam For your consideration I have updated the question with more details.

@Blam Multiple bundles. MDI is probably not the right term for what I was envisioning - more like multiple 'tabs', one for each bundle activity open.

@Blam Yes, the user will generally know when they make a modification which file(s) in the bundle will be modified as a result. They will not be able to select individual files on disk directly, but there is in many cases a 1:1 correspondence between objects shown in the bundle and the file. (But not always; some files are referenced multiple times within a presentation.)

comment How many visually distinct colors can accurately be associated with a separated legend in a figure?
@codeinthehole The entire topic of color perception is clearly too large for one answer. However, if the answer of "study X shows that the maximum number of distinct colors is 12-16", then that's a pretty clear answer to the specific question.

Barring a definitive answer for a generally-accepted name, I'd also welcome comments on other examples of this input or discussions on it; they may help lead to a consensus.

comment TDI vs SDI - when should an app that saves files to disk have one window per “document”?
@Brocka 1. Apple HIG; 2. Side-by-side comparisons: 3. Lack of Proxy Document in title bar for OS X.
