Except for the not so insignificant detail that the developers (in
narrow sense that you mean, as in "software developers") are the ones
who say when they have finished their job - when they haven't... Other
people may make the decisions as to what features are to be included,
but the developers themselves are the ones whose responsibility it is
to ensure that 1) all of the specified features are in fact present
and accounted for and 2) bugs have been eliminated.

And thanks for clearing up the fact that you are the one who is going
off on an irrelevant tangent. I only started posting because someone
mentioned a "showstopper" and he was blasted for it. Along the way I
happened to use the word "developer" meaning anyone connected with
developing a finished product - not some specific part of it (and
admittedly with too little clarity) and you took offense as a software
developer, which is only a small part of the product development

Ah, the joys of industry jargon...
