So, here is an example.
League official his honor Mr. Smith
wants to set up a mailing list for his baseball league.

Picture a hierarchical tree, with "ALL" at the root.
"ALL" is an email list that contains everybody's name, email, phone#, etc.
A subset of "ALL" is "LEAGUE", which contains players, coaches, parents,
hot-dog vendors, stadium managers, etc. That is, everybody connected with
the league, but not Mr. Smith's other contacts (like his friends, his
family, etc)

So, under "LEAGUE" are folders for each team. and for food-vendors, umpires,
coaches, each stadium. AND, get this, any one person can appear in
any, or all

If a person is added to a particular team, his info should
*automatically* be added to
all of the nodes above him. In this example adding to "team" should
add to "LEAGUE" and to "ALL".

info cards should be able to be graphically drag-n-dropped to copy or move
between nodes.

Individuals need to be identified across several fields, not just
email address or phone number because several people,
like husband and wife, might share the same email and phone number.
Thunderbird fails this.

Integrated with email for sending to everybody in a list.
If two lists are emailed to, no dups should be sent.

And on it goes.
Thunderbird cannot do this.
Anybody who is a "coordinator" in any organization that has sub-groups
needs this functionality.
