Empathy Usability Report
 - Delivered findings to Empathy developers
    (http://mairin.wordpress.com/2010/02/25/charlines-empathy-usability-report/)
 - Studied how Empathy developers utilized the findings
 - Discovered 39 usability issues; 3 were fixed immediately
 - Empathy developer, "report itself... more easily accessible"

Usability Issues as bugs
 - Empathy account setup failure: bug severity?
 - Is a usability report the same as a bug?
 - Usability reports are not well expressed as bugs; bugs focus on the
   technology, not on the user experience.

Suggestion: express usability issues as user stories
 - Write broken user story
 - Write ideal (target) user story

Assign "User Experience Advocate" for each project.
