comment How does size/complexity of a project impacts efficiency of a user centered design process?
We can not treat this forum, covering the emerging and subjective field of UX- as other stablished, objective fields such as programming. Creativity and design are big part of the field hence it is not always a right or wrong answer to questions. Many answers to some still valid questions can be based on opinion and personal experience which is not always destructive. in particular since the filed still suffers from limited num of of reliable sources in some aspects.

comment The coding monkey dilemma
I c you point but in the cases I have seen, developers want to come up with the UI themselves & see it as part of their job, or expertise. Here, I am not referring to decisions about algorithm or or architecture etc. 3-4 decades ago for instance a role of IxDer did not exist and all of these decisions were made by developers. Still these are members of the community that see UI are part of development, and telling them what goes where and what the sequence is (i.e. the IxD) equals to telling them how to implement it (i.e. do their job)

comment The coding monkey dilemma
I like your notion of 'coding gorilla'! In fact, in the organisations that are still in transition and immature in UX, the developers become 'coding gorilla's to prevent becoming a 'coding monkey'. In reality, many organisations experience this, unless they have been startups with UX in their agenda from the beginning. Therefore, giving up some authority by bringing designers to the picture happens more often than the other way around.
