Yes. This front-end would be slightly different from the current one.

Yes, but at the beginning, it was our best chance to have a "CSS clean and
working" cube to start.

> Totally agree. We should be working on it.
a) I will review, those CSS changes from the CSS minimum, to see if they
are still needed, and nothing is missing.
b) Carlos already accepted the patch.

> Is the above answer intelligible ?
Yes, it is.

Thanks !
