FWIW, tbis is actually done every time, automatically -- you'll find a
kickstart file in ~root on the installed system.

Actually there was a huge amount of design work, all public.
Additionally, there have been significant improvments based on real

the elements that seem odd to you got different feedback overall, or
address UX problems that aren't immediately obvious but came out
through that process.
