Individual UI component owners (developer/GD) tries to make their component more useable/shining in the process losing the focus in the overall picture. I have somewhere read this to be something like "gold fingering", where individual sculptures were working on a clay model on their own part to form big structure. One guy was supposed to make a finger and he made a golden finger so the term. But if somebody can tell me what is the general term for addressing such thing in software? Also let me know if this is not the forum to address this question where to?
From what I know this process is called Gold plating!
