So, I too have finally finished reading TIARTA and I certainly believe
that the GEP process could have a strong impact in the design phase,
identifying goals for a given project etc etc [where it makes sense].
It's hard to identify where discussion and planning should end and
coding should be begin.

The reason why it failed was the time involved in tracking a case,
documenting it...a lot of these projects [the icon theming and theme
manager come to mind more strongly] had short deadlines and perhaps a
proper GEP process would have resulted in them not making those dates.
