Is this the right approach? It seems to me that the look of individual
widgets should be the last thing we think about. Shouldn't any
conversation with a view to designing a new look start by identifying
usability goals, problems with current implementations, and potential
solutions? Visual stuff should come dead last.

Is there no established lifecycle process to be followed for this kind
of design? I don't think any discussions from the starting point you've
established will be helpful.
