This paper analyzes some fundamental limits posed by the dominant paradigm presently seen in legal drafting software, and describes a new drafting system architecture that has potential to offer significant benefits in expressive power and user experience. A scenario based on a customer service representative drafting a letter in response to a consumer complaint is used to illustrate the issues and the proposed design.
