    I actually thought most of the redesigns were quite nice, as was the reasoning for adopting a type-centric approach. That said, I think this is much more useful as a prototyping strategy than an aesthetic to follow for final/shipping products.

    There's a point at which any of this stuff, taken to extremes, really harms accessibility. I think the Lufthansa example demonstrates this most clearly — in practice, at least a portion of users may be moving through the site in an unfamiliar language. Leaning predominantly on language to convey meaning in those contexts can leave those users at a huge disadvantage.
