    Hi, Lynn! Great post.

    But shouldn't the sentence where you wrote "If you are adding probably useful cases to your design then you are overdesigning." really say "If you are adding *possibly* useful cases to your design then you are overdesigning."? Looks like you did a probably/possibly typo that slipped through editing and reviews!
