That's what happens when you do it stupidly.

Why do you assume it? The usability processes in GNOME imply, on the
contrary, that there is a good way to achieve every use case. Improving
usability often means replacing two non-optimal ways of doing something
by a single, better way of doing it. You only see the two things
removed, through the deforming glasses of the rumor, and miss the
overall usability improvement.
