I don't think they are hand-waving. I think they are let's get off our 
butts and get a modern, usable design in place.

I also don't think it has anything to do with what people think is or 
isn't going on in terms of hard work as much as a want to have a new 
website design in place before 8.0.

Basically, all the designs that have been presented are light years (at 
least the versions I have seen) past what the community has now. They 
may not be perfect, but so what? Let's get something pleasant to look at 
in place.
