Great comment Edward and this view has also been expressed by several
scientists too.  They would like both a natural language summary/description
of a workflow and a summarized/publishable version of a workflow. 

p.s. I have this recorded in the consolidated usability issues list.  This
was one of the top "future features" desired by the scientists.

One goal that I have (which we fall far short of now) is that printout
of a workflow should be a complete description of the workflow.
That is, it should provide enough information to read the workflow
and even to recreate it.  This means showing key parameter values,
which is why the ArrayToSequence actors show the numbers in the icons...
