The feature process has some guidelines in regard to Features that add UI:

"If your feature adds UI or changes the current UI please add as well 
the [DESIGN] tag to the subject. Please add the flag as well if the work 
flow does change or new ones are added. The Design Team should be 
involved in the discussion to guarantee a consistent design and a 
consistent work flow in Sugar. When presenting the feature to the 
release manager the design does not have to be ready but the discussion 
should have been started." [1]
