I've been thinking the same thing for a little while, about 3-4 months before the finale. I hope they do try something like this.

The major complaints many people have about Dawn, I believe, is that she's bratty, whiny, all those adjectives that describe a fifteen year old girl. Which is, I believe what Joss set out to do. I didn't care much for Dawn until Buffy's birthday in season 5 (can't remember the name). You know, the scene, "Is this blood"? After that, she became a more sympathetic character in my eyes. The only problem, though, is that they didn't further that plot line this season. Or, you could argue that they did, but it was overshadowed by so many other, darker plots going on at the same time.

I believe that that would be a great direction for them to go in. Especially since Sarah won't be there after next year, and apparantly everybody else (except Anya) has already signed on for a season eight.

Michelle seems to be a good actor, what little scope they've given her thus far, and I think that this would be a good direction to take.
