Why a heuristic evaluation specific to a Web 2.0 site?  This seems to me, 
to be akin to putting a defining term on something where none is needed.

What would be different about evaluating a web 2.0 site, as opposed to any 
other?  Web 2.0 (and I'll admit I hate the term) simply refers to an 
evolution of the web as a platform.  It's generally about semantic 
content, user-generation, sharing and building iteratively and 
collectively.  I'm still trying to figure out why you would evaluate that 
differently than a more static site.

Aren't the issues (or maybe guiding principles for evaluation), more or 
less, the same?
