Love the video, this functionality feels essential to moving away from some of the d7 sites i've built before.. excellent. Quick question though- do you envisage it working with editable fields (like panels did)?

You mean like 'Quick Edit', I guess so

Great to see this project a really good page builder is badly needed for Drupal - looks like a very good start, well done Lee.

Not sure if you are familiar with the layout builder and visual composer build by NikaDevs (a theme company) but you could do a lot worse then having a look at their approach, it's a very good page builder - which they ave on all their themes.
