Maybe now is a good time.

The project release review documentation contains a section on usability and a reference to the User Interface Guidelines. Projects are expected to explain deviations from the guidelines and standards. How many projects actually complete this section for a review (I admit that I am guilty here), and how often is it raised as an issue as part of the review? Answers: few and none. The documentation requires me to certify that the API is Eclipse Quality, which does impart some sense of importance. Why don’t I also have to certify that the release conforms to the User Interface Guidelines as well?
