I get what you're saying: your comments imply quite strongly that you don't
believe there is any such concept as "usability." If a feature exists, then
people will use it, right?
But in my experience, usability matters -- a lot. It is not only the
quality and utility of a feature, but also how appropriately that feature is
presented (from the *users'* perspective, not the authors'), that governs
how much that feature will pay off.
