I realized I'm not thinking in a flexible way about this.
Would there be a problem with keeping the IN and OUT collections in
the sidebar without changing the interaction behavior? In other words:
+ Allow users to make inclusions and exlcusions via Drag and Drop and
eventually Labeling when we support it
+ Allow users to create new items in the In and Out collections and
do what they want with them
+ Continue to support users sharing their In and Out collections
We've always had this idea that even with 'query-based' collections,
we wanted users to maintain control over the content of the
collection with inclusions and exclusions. I'm sure this behavior
will be confusing to users at first, just as the way in which the
contents of In and Out are defined will be confusing. But with time,
feedback and iteration, we'll figure out the right solution. I was
just nervous about trying to figure out the 'right behavior' by Preview.
