I seem to be losing the battle of changing the subject to reflect the  

I don't have a simple definition of "naive users" that will be useful  
in all circumstances.
developers and 'interested parties' are known to have their own  
agenda, one that might purport to be for the benefit of other groups  
who are not represented.

To that extent it may be necessary to identify naive users as those  
persons not represented.

as you say: end-users, casual developers, people using an authoring  
tool, and people with various disabilities are all very different  
audiences, who deserve individual consideration.

relatively few people are 'developers' and their representation is  
out of all proportion, this cannot but jeopardise and prejudice  
likely outcomes, to the detriment of all concerned.

Hi, Jonathan-

Please define "naive users".  As I said, if you wish to represent a  
constituency, you will have to stop using such vague terms, or we  
cannot begin to answer your questions.
