People here have given some useful input, but I think it's far from obvious that the user experience team has made a "mistake.". (I'm not really intending to weigh in on this particular issue -- I'm speaking generally.)

The readers are not objecting on foundation-l. They are objecting on the blog.

I notice that Howie Fung avoided answering my question: What would it
take for this decision to be reversed?

Also, you may be able to answer the question of what would happen if a
wiki showed community conensus to remove this. Would the foundation
forcibly keep it in place?
