An interesting post by the Japanese Mod Mocchi: The construction of macros will be greatly simplified in 2.0.
First, they will provide templates for often used macros, with the final goal being a helper function that allows
for an easy and comfortable construction. Although not explicitly mentioned by the Mod, his reply to a previous
poster indirectly implies something like drag+drop compatible macro elements (like [use] [ability name] [target],
a modular system as in FF XII). Looks like it's 2012 after all.
