I think bug #1128 "Remove "Erase" and "Remove favorite" Activity palette 
entries from Home favorite view" (http://dev.sugarlabs.org/ticket/1128) 
is a pretty good example of feedback repeatedly coming from the field 
(in this case even from 2 or 3 different people and places), being 
turned into a bug-report, subsequently being discussed (the current 
stage) and then being fixed in time for the next release.

IMHO that is a clear, albeit very simple, demonstration of how things 
can and potentially (if found acceptable for all participants) should work.
