You'll recall that I have suggested actual usability testing, not just shouting :)  (Like usability experts with volunteers (real humans, not CS majors)  in a real usability lab).  I realize that most (all?) IETF WG's aren't used to usability testing, however many of the participants have access to usability labs & experts.
