You have to make decisions. There will always be some big architectural choices that have to be made early in the process, and there will always be some people who would prefer you to have made them differently. At the stage when you are deciding whether to build a road or a railway, comments affecting the decision are useful. When you've made the decision - perhaps painfully - and are 90% of the way to finishing your road, comments that say you should have built a railway are simply not useful. They aren't useful even if they are right - which will generally be unprovable. Actually, as we get closer to finishing, I'm getting more and more convinced that people will find the stronger typing useful, although I was very sceptical when we started. Yes, XML Schema is a pig, but it turns out you can live with it if you avoid looking at it too closely, and that is what large numbers of people are in fact doing.
