A characteristic of this cycle was we had some *very good* designs *very 
early* in the process, we got complacent about them and a long period of 
inactivity occurred (this is why I think we missed refreshes).
Then close to the Beta we tried a refreshed look and post-beta due to 
*some* fedback, a major and unexpected refresh occurred.

For the last few releases we have a recurrent motif: some key decision 
makers stay silent for most of the development cycle and very late in 
the process complain and require a complete (or at least major) 
redesign. This is a serious bug in our process.
