HTC Sense in WP7???

Engadget is reporting via Forbes that the Sense UI will appear on HTC’s Windows phone devices.

Drew Bamford, who heads HTC’s user experience design team, tells Forbes the manufacturer is applying Sense to its first Windows Phone 7 devices, which are expected to launch in October.

Later in the Forbes article, he clarifies that even though they are not allowed to modify the core experience like in the previous versions of the OS, they can still augment it with their special sauce. Among the ideas he envisions for the future of Sense include, easier discoverability and sharing of media, app recommendations to friends and better syncing and data streaming  between the devices and the cloud.

As I read the article, I felt like banging my head on the table because WP7 already offers all the functions he mentioned out of the box! So out of curiosity, how do you guys think Sense will look like on WP7 and in what form (Hub, Live tile, dedicated app?) I myself think it is redundant and they should not even bother.
