Good post Neil.

Milk has already started making the site simpler. Have a look at the front page now.

Designers! Start thinking about a design for the front page. As soon as we can, we'll tell you what menu items you need to incorporate and then we can get a selection of front pages to display!

You wouldn't get someone to paint a mural and then a week later paint over it because you'd decided you didn't like it.

Why do the same with a website?

Various people, especially Milk, have put loads of effort into the current site and it seems a bit pants to shit all over the hard work.
