In general, the more stuff you put to the UI the more complicated
it becomes to the user, but good UI design should be able to help
with that.  Although I might not agree with everything you said, :-)
I think your first mail was well argumented, maybe you could file
an enhancement request to bugs.maemo.org (if there isn't similar
one yet)?
