I agree that a well-designed DSL is *my* best friend but I suspect it
would be my grandma's worst enemy. And a badly-designed DSL is also
everybody's worst enemy.

Also a traditional GUI is discoverable without a user-manual. I can
open up MS Word for the first time and get around - Emacs, while
vastly more powerful, is also vastly more opaque.
