Responses to input, and audio output, should also be as like the real
target as reasonably possible. UI isn't just "how it looks" by any stretch.

But it's just called the UI Simulator. It's name shouldn't define its
function. It should be the other name around - we should decide on its
function then rename it to suit. The name should transmit to the user
what to expect, but shouldn't define where it should go. Telling someone
"it's called a UI simulator because that's all it is" is fine, but that
shouldn't be a reason why it can't become more.

If there's a desire to change its purpose, it might be another thing for
the DevCon agenda.
