The final say, of course, belongs to the buyer, or he who pays the piper calls the tune.  With so many means of feedback to developers, one has only to fully describe the problem, and possibly send along examples of same, and inform the developers how much it means to them to get it solved.
Listening to the continuing discussions within FHISO, I have to wonder whether something is missing; something that's fundamentally necessary for the production of a data standard for genealogy. Let me start with a question: ...

As a software developer, we offered our customers:
1.) Working software
2.) Priced inexpensively
3.) Short deadline to production
                 Pick any TWO.

But what about the functionality +Dae Powell ? If genealogy products did what I needed then I wouldn't have had to write my own (STEMMA). I'm not suggesting that all products should do what I need, but the range of scope is currently "land locked". If there existed a more comprehensive (meaning: bigger scope) standard then the market would be free to specialise or to provide products with a different focus; we [genealogists] would have a "common currency" that allowed us to pick-and-choose one-or-more products without being locked in, and having just one definitive copy of our data between them. Sharing and long-term preservation would also benefit.

Unfortunately, there is no research that I'm aware of that looks at the range of requirements, and such a task is made more difficult by people (including programmers) not demonstrating the type of work they do.
