Well, this sounds very much like the lead user theory (Hippel etc.): by asking your current users, you add evolutionary new features that satisfy your current users but you don't get new users or find new markets for you stuff. By asking from lead users, you might get something your current users didn't think about but might be a "revolution" leading to new products, users, markets etc.

Figured someone smarter had thought it up first :-). But I wasn't really thinking about lead users, just developing technology for the fun of it.
