I only suggested it (offlist) because:

a) I didn't want your work to be in vain if the survey results were 
shockingly contradictory to what you had made.

b) I *really* wanted us to decide on a final set of design requirements 
instead of doing it bit by bit.

c) I wanted us to do it like we'd do any major site development project, with:

i) Proper IA - site goals, content classification, navigation labelling, 
wireframes, (virtual) card-sorting, the works.
ii) Iterative usability testing, redesigning, retesting, till we got it right.
iii) Future-proofing the design by providing places for planned future 

(All that would make a hell of an article too ;)

>I think 6 months is unlikely...

More like 2, IMHO.
