Not to muddy the waters, but just a couple of quick items:
1. The topic of a context menu (like in the Desktop) for the Collection
Selector (and the lozenges) was a very hot topic during the FLOSS
Usability Sprint. It's less discoverable than a big button, but might
work well for the Remove/Rename options, and would be pretty trivial to
2. With the fixed height of the Selector, and lack of any bounding box,
I don't know if it's entirely clear what would be created or removed.
The buttons are pretty far away from the collection names, and there's
nothing to link them visually. This would be a lot less of a problem
once we have a prominent vertical resizer bar under the selector
(presumably below the button(s)).
Just my two pesos. :)
