No way ! I am a follower of "The Mud-Throwing Theory of Usability":

The trick is to "design new websites and innovative Internet services
with the idea to throw it at the wall and see if it sticks. The metaphor
of treating design like mud supposedly leads to shorter time-to-market
and thus faster success in growing the business. The assumption is that
speed is everything. If the initial design has weaknesses (i.e., drops
off the wall), then they can always be fixed in the redesign."

This kinda sums it up, what I've done with the ZDP-Tools ;-)
