You're talking largely about user interface issues. I'd be extremely 
wary of throwing that into a forum populated primarily by engineers. 
I've learned enough about UI to appreciate that it's a wildly different 
discipline than engineering, and that there's not much hope of quickly 
training engineers on an excruciatingly complex topic that people have 
made multi-decade careers out of.

As above, I don't think the I{E,R}TF is the correct forum to debate 
specific UI decisions.
