The design of any UI is near difficult.

At one level is the full and complete engineering outline of features.
This is necessary for testing and sanity of maintaining the underlying

The next level is the way end users use it (or should use it).

The should use it part is interesting....  At any application emerges
there is a lot of us that want to explore the features (engineering) view.
Then there is the next stage where end users keep poking at a tool to
get it to work (underlying bugs and stability issues).   Finaly the tool
and the flow merge to match what the end user needs.

I keep poking at it because of link instability when there should not be.
When the underlying stability vanish my activity map will change.
