Iyashikei

I find this genre difficult to define. What are the trademarks of an Iyashikei series? Is a series that deals with heavy subject matter and contains some character drama disqualified as an Iyashikei, or does only the feeling you get from reading/watching it matter? What series do you think best exemplifies Iyashikei, and which are your favorites?
