Language Design

I took some care in designing the Hi language and its implementation. Recently, there was some debate on LtU whether design and implementation issues should be discussed. A problem is that there are no good designers of programming languages, even, there is no good body of knowledge to abstractly discuss what is, or would constitute, a good programming language.

So, what do we need? Some form of applied semiotics?
