Relax .. its just stupid comments .. engineers are supposed to make things ... cannot tell you how many products I have been a part of a team where one pushing it pushes it for goofy reasons.
Who cares ... make it bulletproof ... what else ya gonna do in the class? You may learn something.
I've invented hundreds of products .. some I thought were great sold zero...some I thought were good sold 1/4 billion dollars worth ...and some I thought were eh also sold for gobs of $$.
You can never tell for sure what the market will react to ...
