As has been stated in various blog posts, initial emails to this list,  
etc, this group is NOT being formed to change the current look of  
WordPress. At all. The goal was to have an infrastructure for user  
experience/interface designers to contribute to core tickets, just as  
there is an infrastructure for developers to participate. The  
development infrastructure gets clogged up when people start arguing  
over small UI details, so we split it off to have a more focused  
group. If someone wants to start a movement to try and convince the  
project leadership to undergo another overall admin redesign, this is  
not the place for it.

I repeat: this group was created to contribute to ongoing UI efforts  
in WordPress core, NOT to redesign the application. This has been  
stated categorically by WordPress leadership...the current design is  
one that people are happy with as a foundation for improvement over  
the next couple of years.
