Learners don't, typically. Anyone who owns a form definition needs to  
be able to, though (updating schemas). This is also relevant to  
reporting capabilities.

To be more specific, I'm not saying that finding in My Workspace  
isn't appropriate to nominal use. I'm saying that we should avoid the  
redefinition of the technical problem/capability to minimize one  
variable. The problem here is that the mechanism for finding forms  
has gross scale problems in multiple dimensions. We're examining a  
couple of rather simple strategies that address them all and don't  
change the behavior. My base metric is that the user should see the  
portfolio screens in no more than 3 seconds, and I think that is  
readily achievable at scale.
