The real issue of LO design projects is that there aren't developers
interested in working UI continually. The design team could discuss and
provide some interesting mockups, but this not means it will come up someone
developing them.

It happened with color picker and with UI easy hacks:
Hundred of easy hacks, even more complex, were solved by newcomer
programmers in the last years, but those small UI hacks are still there with
almost none caring about them. I'm not bothering anyone, just saying what
are the facts.

Other open-source projects ( Gnome, KDE, Elementary, Cinnamon...) are doing
innovations in design and UI/UX because their programmers are interested in
doing it.
Instead, LO sticks with a 2003 UI until there will be devs willing to work
on this topic.

Someone on this list agree about changes, someone not, but what I am saying
is that the "stagnant" attitude isn't really a choice, just a lack of
manpower to code UI  innovation.
