Thanks for this, Steve. Very compelling write-up.

I guess it's the KISS approach.

The underlying principle seems to be you start to exclude people when you complicate things unnecessarily.

I think the COGA message is that COGA people are among the first excluded by such complicated design patterns, and a disproportionate percentage of those excluded.

I think I've tried to talk about this from time to time in saying we can't just advocate good design, we need to explain how failing to do so hits COGA people hardest.
