So much has changed in the computing world in the 4 years since RM7 was released that, as Wayne's request implies, the current desktop model is no longer sufficient. I think most of us would agree to that. I have a desktop and a laptop, and would love to be able to use RM from both, easily. I want to be able to update the information that I make available to the public, online, easily. I will definitely always focus on my LOCAL data being the master, having all the information in it, some of it for my eyes only.
There will always be a difference between what I want the wider public to see, what I want family to see, and what I see. For the info that only I can see, if it's to be available to me when I'm mobile (via mobile phone, web interface, or laptop download) the online storage would have to be encrypted.
It's a complicated problem, and all I can hope for is that this next version of RM, whenever it shows up, takes a few really good steps in the right direction.
This is all so convoluted now that it's gotten to the point that even Eastman recently suggested giving up desktop software and moving everything online, to MyHeritage. I nearly spat coffee all over my monitor when I read that! Most casual genealogy folks will just go ahead and spend the $200/year on Ancestry and consider that their solution. Because it's easy, and it's done, and it's good enough.
The desktop software vendors really have to figure out how to make it easier for folks to do GOOD genealogy using the superior desktop programs, but to also make that data available to themselves when they are mobile, and to others via the web.
