Not getting between the designers and the users, oh no.
Just making an evaluation of the relative usefulness of the whole
project, including the work of the designer/IA/usability folk. Taking a

That usability professionals can sometimes misinterpret and pervert a
good design is a separate topic, and no argument there from me. I'm part
of a team that is about to hand a person-year's worth of design over to
usability assessors, so I can relate, trust me :)
