Surely if The People want a feature, then They will file feature
requests in bugzilla. Also, some of Those People can program, and will
start work on the feature.

Simply stating that without focus groups projects are doomed is naive.
Until recently how else could The People tell Microsoft they wanted a
certain feature, unless you happened to be one of the top 100 customers
and had a personal Microsoft rep?
