Sounds like a typical Use Case driven project. Another classic case of the user's-world discovery process being derailed. (With Use Cases, developers typcially jump right into the To-Be (including imagined To-Be's)).

These developers are probably not going to change their approach. A new champion of the user is needed.

But I digress. The question remains, however: Do you think that developers should be involved in this porcess?
