-1 on using "headlines".  It is even more confusing.   Reading "promote 
to headlines" doesn't makes me think: "Ah, this promotes the node to the 
front page".  It makes me wonder where these "headlines" are to be found.

Note that the "promote to front page" toggle might disappear once the 
workflow and action modules hit core.  Why?  Because "promote to front 
page" might become an action.

There are a number of important usability improvements we have agreed 
upon at the usability sprint in Antwerp.  Why don't we focus on those?
