Throw a plotter on the back and your set!

Though...I don't see how this is helpful.  Take my statement with a grain of salt as I've been out of the CAD market for quite some time now.

Isn't this a step backwards?

Nope.  We used to have "roll tables", long tables with a hand-cranked roller at each end and a continuous sheet of mylar.  Full size drawings would be taped to the mylar so everyone could review and mark up a common set.  It's a bit of workout when you need to go a hundred-plus drawings in one direction or the other.
If you are going to fly by the seat of your pants, expect friction burns.

try {GreatPower;}
   catch (notResponsible)
      {NextTime(PlanAhead);}
   finally

I see it as hybrid of old and new.  A monitor on a drafting machine table.
Stand when you want to stand and sit when you want to sit.

I understand that concept, but how are you going to utilize it?  Have the vertical and horizontal bars and use a stylus to make the lines?  Going back to a standard scale to measure it out?
