I understand that; I'm curious as to if you have worked with 'formal' user
testing methods (eg https://www.usability.gov/how-to-and-tools/methods/)

I don't doubt that :)

Sure! I'm not trying to dissuade you from running private fork features in
the deployments you manage :)

I am trying to meet your needs as well as the needs of other contributors.

I presume Sebastian posted the screenshot to suggest that the user
experience of this feature is not yet very good from his perspective. The
large size of the dialog is surprising to me.

Since you are leading the development of this feature, since you have ready
access to children with XOs, and since you are advocating the change, I
think that methodological user testing can help you improve the feature for
yourself, and help address the concerns of other community members :)
