I'd tend to agree with you that pointing this in ubuntu-devel-discuss 
is uterly useless, wether late in the development cycle or early, as it 
has proved for many releases. Bug reports in Launchpad have at least 
contributed to Ubuntu's support for a few month in history (Feisty). 
However, let's not forget tablet users have already been doing The Right 
Thing (launchpad bugs) for month. Before Hardy was even released.

As you said, we're 5 of 6 month in Intrepid development.
