FWIW, Michael apparently dropped in the Greater Seattle LUG in November,
and send a similar e-mail to that group.  As a PS, he mentions:

  This report is a skunkworks project of mine, and really doesn't
  have anything to do with my "day" job. I just feel very strongly that
  Microsoft needs to listen better to what users need and want to try and
  change attitudes.

Which, to me, sounds pretty positive.  I mean, for all I know, it could
be complete bupkiss, but I'd rather not take an offensive stance, as that
wouldn't be very 'open'-minded ;^)
