I actually don't think it would hurt them that much at all. The 'power users' would be the ones to benefit from the change, and 'regular users' wouldn't even have to consider it if they didn't want to.

I suppose if they did it carefully I would agree. I guess what I am saying is that an Apple that made that shift isn't the same Apple anymore, and I wouldn't expect them to be able to open up and yet make sure their UI for the regular users was preserved. Many regular users might be lured into a hybrid experience they don't appreciate.
