Interesting discussion. My viewpoint is that the UI is a mapping from
the user's own mental model of a system to how the system actually
works. If the way the system works is similar to the user's mental model
then it would seem a "data driven UI" is suitable. A spreadsheet seems
like a good example of a mental model that maps to an underlying system.

In many systems of non-trivial complexity it seems to me that data-driven
UIs are unsuitable or unworkable, precisely because the nature of the
underlying system design is different from the way a user perceives and
interacts with the system. In recent years we have come to highly value
UX/UI designers for these reasons.
