A few issues with this:
1. You can only have one active global folder at a time so that could potentially cause problems. Technically Flex doesn't have dependencies on global, but I'm not sure if there would be conflicts. You definitely wouldn't get customizations and code from that global.
2. Your header and footer from Zen would not work on Flex. Flex would not ask for those files.
3. Any variables set on Zen would not work on Flex (we have purposefully namespaced them) and vise versa.
It MAY be theoretically possible (I haven't tried it) to have a Zen site running a non-standard Flex skin such as Live e-Edition (which has no header and footer or theme options like the rest of the site). However, since Zen and Flex Live e-Editions are very similar, I'm not sure why you'd want to.

Moreover, Disqus has built a single sign-on solution into its API that, though it's a bit complicated, could be integrated with Blox logins, making the experience seamless for users.
At the very least, the option to use the free Disqus commenting should be one that's included.
We have run into a situation where we have obituaries (in the form of article assets) that need to run on more than one day in print. Because of the budgeting limitations in TCMS, you can't assign an asset to more than one edition of a single publication -- just one print placement.
I'm arguing that TCMS should allow us to schedule a single asset to as many print placements as needed or desired, rather than us having to create multiple copies of an asset (each with its own publication placement) or simply having to remember to change the publication on the original asset day-to-day.
I'm all for a solution that keeps a single asset in the system, rather than duplicates, which run the risk of transferring over to the hosted Blox side, where multiples of the same asset could cause confusion for front-end users (especially in searches.) Imagine searching for grandma's obituary only to find three copies of it online, one for each day it ran in print -- each with its own comments and URL.
Anyone else second this? Have a suggested solution for our workflow?
Here is an article from this feed that has a child html asset.
One of my favorite techniques is that you can add a class into the settings of the block. So in this case, I'm adding a class called "center-text."
By itself, these custom classes don't do anything. It just inserts the class into the div created by the system.
You would have to create your own CSS which then targets that class, and possibly other items inside the block, to create your rules.
I would recommend using Firebug or Web Developer Tools to test out the rules and classes and see what specific items you need to target to accomplish what you want.

Looking at your example, this looks very much like something you should be able to build with BLOX Forms. You can set up a new questionnaire, set yourself as the recipient, e-mail the link to the coaches. The submissions would then be e-mailed to you, as well as be available in the Form Submissions panel for review (in case you are on vacation and someone has to fill in, etc.)
