Cubase Usability / User Experience

Although the last release was a step in the right direction, considering usability, I think many agree it was a rather small step.

Will Steinberg continue this overhaul of the GUI and bring Cubase into the 21:st century before version 8?

If Steinberg could officially commit to this, I think many of us that still use Cubase might consider staying with Cubase for another year, despite the quickly evolving market.
If Steinberg instead continue to stay silent on this matter I can only interpret that as a “no”.

For this to happen, does Steinberg intend to hire any “Usability” or “User Experience” experts, or will you continue to let the programmers design the GUI for you?
