Well, I believe that participants of these discussions just work it
out in most cases. But, continuing your car analogy, it looks like
this car has gas and brake pedals swapped and steering wheel is
nowhere to be found. May be this new revolutionary driving interface
is great for those who never driven a car yet, but those who did will
find it hard to accept.

I disagree with that. Before we can concentrate on the solutions, we
need to agree on problems, or at least acknowledge that we have
problems :-)
