In my view, the failure is much more likely to arise from marketing 
people than engineers.  Whilst most engineers may not realise, even 
those who do, and may even raise an issue report, are likely to get 
overruled by marketing.  Some may self censor, because they know they 
will be rejected, and most may just have learned to think like marketing 
people as the best way of being appreciated in the organisation.
