Even if the engineer warned someone of the consequences, middle management deemed those inconsequential... =D
And they were right! This was engineers mistake, not a management one. Someone probably forgot about Iceberg principle and showed demo which looked good enough to be released. Don't do that! Management is not competent enough to discuss such things. Don't ever forget about the rule: build your UI in such a way that unfinished parts look unfinished.
It's surprising how often seemingly competent software engineers forget about this simple rule and how much grief this produces in the end.
