I appreciate your perspective on this, and I'm well aware that the
final decision on this will need to be an "executive" one- that poll
is just one way to gauge the community sentiment.
Note that a change to "Outline" would actually make it more consistent
(as some have noted) with part of the existing UI for book module.
Anyhow, there are at least 4 possible courses to take:
1) leave it as "book", with the data upgraded appropriately.
2) kick "book" out to contrib and put in a new module with an upgrade path.
3) eliminate "book" and put in a new module with an upgrade path.
4) Keep a minimally updated "book" in D6 and a new module which can
convert over your existing book structure. Eliminate "book" in D7.
