In firms where marketing has lots of power, they may indeed well decide
to pursue those "10 millions" by demanding an expenditure of effort
that's totally out of proportion (to the detriment of the other "190
millions", of course, since there IS a finite amount of development
resources to allocate).  Maybe that's part of the explanation for the
outstanding success of some enterprises founded by engineers, led by
engineers, and staffed overwhelmingly with engineers, competing with
other firms where marketing wield power...?
