I'm not sure I would go so far as to say that every checkin should have a wonderful UI from the very beginning ... especially if it's necessary for other developers to access settings in the dialog (or whatever) for their own projects. However gross problems such as clipped buttons and the like _should never occur_.

But if anything with poor UI design _is_ checked in, the item that generated it can't be marked "fixed" and it needs to be bubbled to pretty near the top of the stack for the appropriate developer. The Mozilla project has seemed to allow some of these monstrosities to exist for weeks or months on end ... this is amateurish.
