In most cases, the reaction to UI changes is to complain about the
change because it's ... different.  That makes for very poor arguments,
*especially* when the change is discussed without people having actually
tried it out for a while to see how it plays out in practice after the
initial "bump".

So, IMO always discussing such changes before implementing the change
may be systematic but it is definitely not the best solution.
