The best _model_ seems to be iterative development of
some sort, perhaps test driven. AXD 301 had great
success with steadily improving "increments", to take
one of the great success stories.

Taking a number like 35% for implementation means your
whole project is done about 50% faster (in 2/3 the
time) even if the language permits infinitely faster
development than the state of the art, simply because
the rest of the phases aren't concerned with
programming. (That's the usual argument against
switching programming languages, of course.) This
doesn't seem right -- the added flexibility also means
you can use powerful new development processes. 

My recommendation: try to "switch to better rules".

Best,
Thomas
