All I can say is that you are not alone in the fact that you do not
get to meet the customers.
I have found the Customer support and sales people to be one of my
best sources of input and am always asking them for comments even
though they are not the people who are "supposed" to be approving

I even asked them to pass on their FAQs to me, as they reflect things
that are either missing or not clear in the user guides, but
unfortunately I did not get far with that.
