I think it would be more meaningful to provide links to their actual 
usability study/research then a links to their design/mockups and FAQ 
for novice end users.

I think people on this list are more wanting to understand why they are 
making those changing and less how they are making those changes.

As you can see the most criticism against the Gnome UI Design is removal 
of existing "features/usage" not about the look and feel about the 
design and usability of Gnome-shell ( all thou I've come across 1 really 
annoying usability issue which may or may not be a bug ).

Now I should point out that the reboot button has had a tendency to 
"disappear" early in the development cycle ( has occured for few cycles 
now ) and usually at the same/similar time the keyboard layout settings 
starts to default to US only then reboot button reappears and keyboard 
layout settings work again...
